Taking his job seriously: One of Tommy Faucheux’s last assignments with the parish was a mock disaster drill.

Sirmon has been employed by the parish since June 2004 as a communications officer in the Department of Emergency Preparedness.
Sirmon replaces Tommy Faucheux who worked from December 2005 until April 2007 with the parish and the school Board simultaneously’, being paid half his salary ( $17,000) by the parish and ($17,000) by the School Board.
