St. Martin Parish Fire District
Firefighters Honored at Gala!
Last night, firefighters from the st Martin Parish Fire District were honored by the Lafayette General Health System at their 5th Annual Hero Awards Gala because of their dedication in saving a life in a recent rescue.
On September 25, 2018, firefighters from our Part Time Staff, Breaux Bridge, Cecilia, and Henderson Volunteer Fire Departments responded to Interstate 10 for a crane that had fallen on a vehicle. These firefighters responded rapidly and began to extricate a trapped victim. After tirelessly working on this rescue, the trapped patient was accessible and transferred to Acadian Ambulance Services. The patient was transferred to Lafayette General Hospital.
7 firefighters were recognized for their efforts, 3 were in attendance. In the photo are Jeremy Melancon, Fire District Coordinator Brody Miller and Theodore Thibodeaux. Not able to attend were Chris Guidry, Blake Menard, Richard Scott Nicolle, and Nick Potier.
