COMMUNICATIONS

The Lafayette Fire Department has its own Communications division responsible for receiving and processing emergency calls for the city and parish of Lafayette. Their core objective is to dispatch adequate resources in a prompt manner to aid in the reduction of the loss of life and property for both career and volunteer departments.
 
Our dispatchers handle approximately 11,000 emergency calls annually. They work closely with telecommunicators from Lafayette Parish 911 Center, law enforcement, and Acadiana Ambulance to ensure appropriate personnel and equipment arrive on an emergency scene efficiently.
