We realize the importance of providing you with accurate information in the event of an emergency. We also understand how important it is that you receive that information as quickly as possible.
We’ve been told that our email alerts haven’t been reaching our subscribers in a timely manner due to some people not having an e-mail app installed on their phone or because some of our elderly residents do not use email.
Therefore, we’ve changed course and we’re now providing text message notifications. As soon as we send the alert out, you’ll be able to receive it within seconds as a text message on your mobile phone.
Signing up is simple. Just head on over to our signup page, and you’ll be asked for your name, mobile phone number, and the name of your carrier. That’s it. You’ll be all set to be notified in the event of an emergency situation that could affect you and your loved ones.

Here’s to another successful year. Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend to support the Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department at our annual firemen’s fair.
We appreciate the continued support of our community, and the support of people from other communities near and far. It is because of you all that we are able to perform the critical services that we provide to the community.
To our corporate sponsors, our cooks, the bidders at our auction, the workers in our food stands, and many, many more, our success is the result of a team effort between the department, our members, and each of you who support us in one way or another.
Thanks again to all of you.
It always makes our day when we hear feedback from our community, and the sister of one of our deceased members posted this on Facebook.
We wanted to share it with all of you so that the sacrifices of our members from days gone by do not get forgotten.
So many people gave so much of their time, and they served, and they served selflessly.
Their sacrifices will never be forgotten.

It’s that time of year again, and the fairgrounds in Choctaw, Louisiana are starting to resemble the Choctaw Firemen’s Fair.
The 36th Annual Choctaw Firemen’s Fair will be held March 8th, 9th and 10th at the Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department fairgrounds in Choctaw.
Come on out and have a good time while supporting the Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department.
Winter weather is still with us, and statistics have proven that the risk of residential fires increases during the Winter months.
The Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department doesn’t want anyone ‘to be in that number’.
Be a Saint and ‘check dat’ smoke detector.
