The program for Fire Station No. 6 includes two apparatus bays and living and sleeping quarters for four firefighters. During the planning phase, Chase Marshall and parish officials determined that this station should be two stories due to the complete devastation left by Hurricane Katrina. By placing the private functions of the stations on the second level, the fire department is properly staged to operate during future rescue and recovery efforts.
