Welcome to Fire District 12

Fire District 12 was founded in 1984 and opened its first fire station in April 1986. Originally funded by a 5-mill property tax approved by the voters, the District now operates five stations, employs more than 50 full-time firefighters, and coordinates dispatch services for 10 of St. Tammany’s fire protection districts.
