On the Road with the 'Spirit of Louisiana'

November 2011 - We make a number of appearances with our buddy.  Just recently at the La. Safety and Security Convention at the Pontchartrain Center the "Spirit of La." was on hand for the viewing pleasure of the public.  The band along with the La. State Fire Marshal Honor Guard opened the convention with pride and honor.  Vendors from around the country always give us the best compliments.  We aim to please! 


 May 2010 - Band members were present for the rededication of the 'Spirit of Louisiana' fire engine.  This engine was donated by the citizens of Louisiana to the Fire Department of New York following 9/11 and was built to their specifications by Ferrara Fire Apparatus Co. of Holden, LA.  After Hurricane Katrina, FDNY donated the fire engine back to New Orleans.  Following many years of hard service, the 'Spirit of Louisiana' was refurbished and donated to the Louisiana Fire Marshal's Office.  It was a great honor for Baton Rouge and fire service pipes and drums to be present, some for the second time, for this dedication.  We all can be very proud!
