    Smoke alarms are an important part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke alarms give you early warning so you can get outside quickly.

Station Events

ZFD Install smoke detectors

The ZFD is starting a fire prevention program, by installing smoke detectors “for free” for citizens who do not have smoke detectors or cannot install them.  We are requesting names, addresses, how many people are in the home, and a phone number to call, for the person who would need this service.  The LA State Fire Marshal’s Office is providing the ZFD with the free smoke detectors.

For more information citizens can call the ZFD at 654-0026.

The City of Zachary has been notified by the Insurance Service Office (ISO) that the fire protection rating for the Zachary Fire Department will remain a Class 2 Rating.  According to Fire Chief Danny Kimble, who delivered the news to the City Council on Tuesday, the ISO rating is from 10 – 1, with "1" being the best. He also announced that this year, the department’s scores actually escalated because of the manpower, equipment and water availability.  Just about every aspect of a city and fire department was evaluated in determining the ISO rating. Points are given on everything from training, updated equipment, to the distance between fire hydrants. This rating also continues to help residents living in the City of Zachary, secure lower fire insurance premiums.

 “Maintaining this Class 2 rating is truly a testament to the continued hard work of the Zachary Fire Fighters and many Volunteer Fire Fighters,” says Mayor David Amrhein.  Hat’s off to this department, who are true public servants who constantly give back to our city in so many ways.
