Fire Station No. 8 is a reflection of the constantly changing programmatic needs of a fire company. This station includes a company of firefighters and two fire apparatus. 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.
