March 14, 2011 - Shreveport Fire Department chosen to Host Belgium Firefighters

During the visit the group will stay at assigned fire stations

Shreveport Fire Chief Brian A. Crawford announced the Shreveport Fire Department has been selected to host 10 firefighters from Belgium from Wednesday, March 16th through Wednesday, March 23rd. Belgium Battalion Fire Chief Paul Vanlook heads up the Belgium Fire Observers Organization, a non-profit group whose mission is to allow its members to visit major fire departments throughout the United States annually for the purpose of studying successful fire service programs.
During the visit the group will stay at assigned fire stations throughout the City as well as visit the various support divisions within the Department to “look behind the scenes of a major American city” in hopes of gleaning the department’s best practices.
The tentative itinerary of events for the Belgium Firefighters:

    Wednesday, March 16 – 9:30 a.m. – Welcome and Press Conference at Fire Administration with SFD Command Staff. (Media is encouraged to attend)
    ● Thursday, March 17 – Activities at various fire stations
    ● Friday, March 18 – Visit SFD Divisions for demonstrations
    Saturday, March 19 – Activities at various fire stations
    Sunday, March 20 – Site seeing in city
    ● Monday, March 21 –Meeting with Chief Crawford and visit SFD Division for demonstrations
    Tuesday, March 22 – Activities at various fire stations—Belgium Firefighters will depart Shreveport March 23 around 8:00 a.m.

*Please note that the schedule is subject to change.
“We’ve never been to Louisiana before, and we look forward to working with the Shreveport Fire Department which is considered the busiest fire department in Louisiana,” said Belgium Battalion Chief Vanlook.

This is an excellent opportunity to have international comradely and brotherhood within the two departments while sharing ideas that might enhance the overall fire service profession.
