Welcome to West Monroe Volunteer Fire Department
The Members of the West Monroe Volunteer Fire Department mourn the loss of Charter Member Arnold Shaw.
Arnie was a very active member from the time the department was founded. He was a past director of the fire department's Board of Directors, with a hardworking, common sense attitude. He always had great stories to tell.
Our good thoughts and prayers are with the Shaw family.
Summer time is vacation time. But the Chiefs at the West Monroe Volunteer Fire Department keep the drills right on track.

The West Monroe Fire Department has taken delivery of 22 new MSA Air Packs
On December 15 2015 the West Monroe Fire Department began training on their newly acquired MSA brand Self Contained Breathing Apparatus(SCBA), also known as Air Packs. These Air Packs are worn by firefighters to protect them from smoke, chemicals and heat while operating on the scene of emergencies. The Air Packs were purchased with a combination of local funds and a federal grant through the department of homeland security. These new Packs have the latest features to improve fire fighter safety and reduce fire fighter fatigue.
