    Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After /The St Bernard Parish Fire Department

    in Writing

    When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise.  For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute.  99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed.  In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.


    St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.


    As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).


    After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated.  Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.


    For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people.  The community is still re-building 10 years later.


    During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.


    Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.


    Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet.  We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".


    Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.
