Bridge City Volunteer Fire Co. #1

Bridge City Volunteer Fire Company No.1 is part of the 7th District located on the Jefferson Parish West (Best) Bank. Now for you out of towners who happen upon this site, Jefferson Parish is divided by the mighty Mississippi River. The town of Bridge City gets its name from the Huey P. Long Bridge, that lands on the West Bank in our community. The Huey P. Long Bridge is the longest railroad bridge in the world.

Other departments in the 7th District include Avondale, 9 Mile Point, Herbert Wallace and Live Oak. Bridge City has only one fire station and is located on the west end of Bridge City, LA, where Louisiana highway LA-18 meets Bridge City Ave and adjacent to the downriver end of Northrop Grumman Ship Yard. The fire station includes; three double engine bays, crew quarters and a meeting hall used for training, testing and community activities and meetings. The station also has a cascade system used for filling SCBA bottles for the department and other departments in the district. The Jefferson Parish Fire Training Center is also located in Bridge City, practically under the Huey P. Long Bridge.
