The Lafourche Parish Fire District #3 services the Port Fourchon area, with jurisdiction from north Larose to the Jefferson Parish boundary line. Having firefighting and emergency services on site in Port Fourchon adds to port preparedness and safety.
Fire district personnel are trained and equipped to assist with any emergency situation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Firefighters undergo specialized training to fit the growing and changing needs of Port Fourchon and surrounding areas. Such training includes rappeling and rope rescue from elevated structures as well as confined rescue to assist workers trapped in confined spaces.
The fire district consists of both paid employees and firefighting volunteers and is coordinated by Fire Central Dispatch, a state-of-the-art telecommunication center. Fire Central dispatches for the fire department, Lafourche Ambulance, and Port Fourchon Harbor Police, answering emergency calls and calls for service throughout the port area. New in 2012, paid firefighters will be on duty 24 hours a day in the port, ready to respond to any emergency.
Emergencies can be reported by dialing 911, or dial 985-396-3911 for non-emergency calls.
The Lafourche Parish Fire District #3's Port Fourchon Fire Station is located at 412 A.J. Estay Road, centrally located to handle emergencies. With the construction of the port's new Multi-Agency Emergency Response/Operations Building coming soon, an additional fire engine and firefighting equipment will be staged near the entrance to the port on A.O. Rappelet Road.
