- Canteen 51 - Due to a change in leadership at the local Salvation Army we no longer have access to the Disaster Service Canteen. We now use our POVs (Privately Owned Vehicles) to respond and transport rehab supplies to incidents.
Longest Assignment On Monday, June 17, 2002 there was a freight train derailment along the 10000 block of Harts Island Road off of La. Highway 1 near the LSU Pecan Station. Twenty-one cars left the tracks with some of them knocking down power lines which started several small fires.

Unit 51 responded with Signal 51 members and stayed on the scene 22 hours serving refreshments to over 100 emergency workers.
