Lincoln Parish residents are not strangers to volunteering. This is especially true within the Lincoln Parish Fire Department. However, volunteering for LPFD is different in that it requires extensive training because the volunteers could be fighting fires.
Lincoln Parish Fire District No.1 is looking for additional committed, enthusiastic members ready to learn. They will be hosting a firefighter school for anyone interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter. LPFD is encouraging people to take time to volunteer at this time and attend the firefighter school this fall.

These same homeowners and gardeners will pay over $6.00 for a small bale of pine straw in the spring.
