Home Fire Safety

Fire Is Everyone's Fight

Fire Is Everyone’s Fight™ is a national effort led by the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) to lower the number of home fires and home fire injuries in America. Along with USFA and partner organizations across the country, the fire community is speaking out with a unified message of fire prevention and safety to the public. The goal is to change how people think about fire and fire prevention using social marketing strategies to address the broadest possible audience. 

The fire problem in the United States is an ongoing and continuous battle for the fire service and the public alike. Eighty-one percent of all fire deaths and 76 percent of all fire injuries occur in residential buildings.

Each year there is an estimated:

·         365,500 residential building fires

·         2,560 deaths

·         13,275 injuries

·         $6.6 billion in property loss

Providing the Highest Level of 24 Hour Response Since 1931

The History of MHFD

The Marrero Harvey Volunteer Fire Company #1 was established in 1931 with twelve Charter Members. The Jefferson Parish Water Co. District 2 was responsible for the creation of a fire department with thee paid employees and the Marrero Harvey Volunteer Fire Company #1 was created because at the time there were only three other fire departments on Westbank of Jefferson Parish, David Crockett and Gould who covered the City of Gretna and the City of Westwego who covered the City of Westwego. The original fire house was the Jefferson Parish Waterworks building located at 7th street and Avenue D. This building still stands today but has not been a fire house since the 1970’s. in 1965 the Jefferson Parish Civil Defense, now known as Office of Emergency Management, helped the Marrero Harvey Fire Company purchase their first fire truck.

The Marrero Harvey Volunteer Fire Co. #1 response area covers 20 miles and includes 9 high rise buildings that include the West Jefferson Hospital and an Assisted Senior Living Center. We also have very Vast and Diverse Industrial Area that is along the Mississippi River. The Marrero Harvey Volunteer Fire Co. #1 is very committed and involved to its community. We attend and staff a First Aid Booth for several school fairs. The Marrero Harvey Fire Co. #1 has evolved from the early days of having One Fire Station, One Fire Truck and only One Fireman to now having three fire stations, 7 fire trucks (4 pumpers, 1 ladder truck, 1 rescue truck, and a foam and water tanker) and two support vehicles.
