Thibodaux Named Louisiana’s Top Department

TVFD AwardThe Thibodaux Fire Department was named the state’s department of the year, the all-volunteer crew learned at its annual meeting.

Thibodaux was the first volunteer department in the state to secure the second-best fire rating available, and it retained that score during a routine review last summer, officials said.

The rating, based on factors such as manpower, response times and training, is issued by the Property Insurers Association of Louisiana and impacts how much property owners pay for home owners insurance.

Thibodaux is the largest volunteer department in the state with nearly 500 members, but not all are actively involved.

State Fire Marshal Butch Browning was at the department’s January 21st meeting to announce the honor, which singles Thibodaux out from all other departments statewide, both paid and volunteer.
