This is Just a Drill!

Posted: Feb 24, 2022 11:51 AM

The Bossier Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness will participate in a safety response drill at Cypress Baptist Church in Benton on Friday, Feb. 25.

The hour and a half-long emergency drill will begin at 6:00 p.m. Organizers say this will be a small drill and not a large-scale exercise. Cypress Baptist Church staff and members will train with local first responders on various aspects of disaster preparedness. This “all-hazards” approach to emergency training will have first responder representatives and church members working to improve their disaster plans and procedures.

By design, this is a small drill, and this release is to inform the Benton Community and any motorists passing the church to please proceed cautiously when they see the emergency response vehicles surrounding the church campus from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
