BRFD Organization Chart

Under the direction of the Fire Chief and with assistance of the Chief of Operations, our administrative offices work closely in seeing that the administrative responsibilities are handled efficiently. With the support and help of our secretarial staff, the Fire Chief and the Chief of Operations’ administrative duties are made easier and are carried out in a well-organized manner that results in the smooth and efficient operations of the Baton Rouge Fire Department.

This division maintains records of all personnel, training, maintenance of vehicles and facilities, budgets and financial data which it organizes, analyzes, and prioritizes in order that recommendations may be directed to the Fire Chief for his use in running the day-to-day operations of the department.
