For more than 150 years, The Shreveport Fire Department has protected our homes and businesses.

With the announcement of a new fire station being built in Shreveport, I thought it would be interesting to see if there were some videos of fire crews of the past in Shreveport.

I was able to find a few. Here are two of my favorites:

This first one is a visit to different fire crews throughout Shreveport shot in the early 70s.

This one is from a home movie of fire crews responding to a house fire in Captain Shreve. The movie is a little blurry and shaky in places, but it was 1970, after all.

Keep up the great work, SFD!! And congrats on the new station!
