Bayou Chicot firefighters hold workday
The Bayou Chicot Volunteer Firefighters recently held a workday at the Bayou Chicot Fire Station.
“Along with their hard work and time the Fire District would like to thank Doug Ashy Building Materials, Ace Hardware, Ville Platte Rentals, and Cedilo Communications for their generous donations of materials and equipment,” Bobby Guilbeau, District Chief of Ward Five Fire Protection District said. “The members of the department gave up a Saturday with their families to come together and pressure wash the exterior of the station, paint the hose-drying rack, flag pole and the interior walls of the station meeting area and office. The donations from the above businesses along with the donated time of the members has allowed the Fire District to maintain a piece of parish property at no cost to the taxpayer, allowing us to use the dedicated funding we receive for firefighting purposes.”
