Iowa Residents must call Iowa Fire Department (during office hours) to obtain a burn permit. Property must be inspected prior to permit being issued.
The Iowa Volunteer Fire Dept. (Ward 8 Fire Dist. #1 of Calcasieu Parish) was established in 1952. Today Iowa VFD is a combination fire department, our roster consist of approximately 25 volunteers and two fulltime firefighters who staff the station Monday through Friday 8am-4:30pm. Without volunteers, who would protect our community, our family, and our neighbors?
Iowa VFD, has a junior volunteer firefighter program for teens, ages 16-17.
Anyone interested in being a volunteer firefighter or a junior firefighter, please come by the station and fill out an application, and help make a difference in your community. You can also email IVFD Fire Chief Joseph “Scooter” Lewis.
We meet every Wednesday night at 6:30pm for trainings or meetings. The Fire Board of Commissioners meets every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:00PM at the Fire Dept. This meeting is open the public and all are invited to attend!
