The Chackbay Volunteer Fire Department was incorporated on August 31, 1966. From that day on, many men and women have devoted their time and skills to protect the life and property of this great community. While the trucks, equipment, and faces have changed, our mission has remained the same. Our goal is to continue to provide the best Fire, Rescue, and EMS services to this community. Through hurricanes, floods, fire, and any other disaster thrown at us, we have remained committed to serving you, our neighbors.

Parcel Fee

The Lafourche Parish Fire Protection District 8-C imposes a $75.00 Parcel Fee on homeowners and business owners in the fire district. These funds are used to supports the ongoing operations of the Chackbay Fire Department. Currently, the Parcel Fee generates roughly $160,000 each year. These funds are used for the purchase and upkeep of fire stations, apparatus, equipment, hose, PPE, maintenance, fuel, etc. These funds are extremely important being they are the only reliable source of income for the Fire Department.

"Volunteers don't necessarily have the time;

they just have the heart."
