Two Acadiana fire departments--in Iota and Carencro--are the recipients of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) preparedness grants.
The grants in Louisiana total $686,738 and cover costs for firefighting gear for the Carencro Fire Department; the Fire Protection District #1 of West Feliciana Parish in St. Francisville; the Iota Fire Protection District of Acadia Parish in Iota; the New Orleans Fire Department; and the Plaucheville Volunteer Fire Department.
Fire departments and a Tribal Nation in five states - Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas - have been awarded more than $1.69 million in these FEMA preparedness grants.
