I am encouraging everyone who has been impacted by the flooding to begin documenting (photographs, lost wages, etc. ) those losses as soon as possible. However, please do not attempt to return to homes or property until it is safe to do so. I will be notifying everyone as soon a date and time has been arranged.

Allen Parish has been conducting training on incident command as a collaboration between the Sheriff's Office and Allen Parish Fire Departments. The Allen Parish Sheriff's Office, along with Parish Fire Departments and other Emergency services will be conducting a training exercise in Elizabeth, La.
The exercise will start at 8 am on this Saturday, June 28th, and should last about two hours. The exercise will involve a simulated meth lab explosion and chemical fire in a residence and a serious two vehicle accident involving injuries and trapped occupants. The incident will include "worse case" scenarios in order to evaluate response capabilities and the implementation and adherence to Incident Command protocols.
We are letting the public know that it is in fact a drill, so as not to unduly alarm anyone.
All Allen Parish Schools as well as offices within the Allen Parish Courthouse will be closed tomorrow and Wednesday (January 28-29) due to severe winter weather advisory. Also I strongly urge you to stay off the roadways if at all possible. While I hope it is not the case, you should prepare for power outages. Also be aware that petroleum based (kerosene, diesel, etc) heaters can be dangerous when used inside, so please use caution if they become necessary.
