For the past seven years the 34 Carnival Krewes that parade in New Orleans have come together to support our First Responders. Without these brave men and women of the New Orleans Police Department, New Orleans Fire Department and New Orleans Emergency Medical Services, there would be no Carnival. These men and women work many hours of overtime during the 12 days of Carnival which take them away from their families so they can protect us and everyone along the parade route.
Krewes for Karnival’s First Responders was formed to give back to New Orleans’ First Responders for all that they do for the Krewes and the public during the Carnival season.
The NOPD, NOFD and NOEMS identify specific needs before we disburse the funds. Over the past seven years we have purchased fluorescent vests, training equipment, interrogation training, turnout gear, helmets, wireless headsets, Kevlar, Bulletproof and Ballistic vests.
