LATEST OUT OF LIVINGSTON PARISH: CURFEW ANNOUNCED IN ANTICIPATION OF BARRY’S IMPACTHere’s the latest from Sheriff Jason Ard Livingston Parish & Layton Ricks – Livingston Parish President:Sheriff Jason Ard: Hey, this is Sheriff Jason Ard. Here with Parish President Layton Ricks. Just want to give everybody an update. Just had a conference call with our Police Chiefs and our Fire Chiefs – just making sure we all stay in contact. Right now, we're doing what everybody else is doing. We're watching. We're prepared. We have deputies out in full force. Again, we're staying in communication with all law enforcement and fire chiefs. In case anything comes up, we're more than prepared and ready to handle it. Again, pay attention, stay prepared and wait and see what happens. Parish President Layton Ricks: Other thing we want to say, too – we've got a lot of sand and sand bags out. We're continuing to put sand and sand bags out. We encourage people to pick up everything out of their yards that could possibly blow down in our ditches and culverts – that's some things we found when we were cleaning them out. So, that would help us a lot. It would also benefit you. And, certainly we want to encourage everyone to stay off the roadways as much as possible so emergency personnel can respond a little more safely to things that they need to. Along those lines, I will be announcing a CURFEW TONIGHT FROM DUSK UNTIL DAWN! That will go into effect. That will give people enough time. And, the Sheriff and his deputies will use discretion. We understand some of you have to work. You have to be out. They'll use their discretion. It's important that we not have sight-seers and people who just want to ride around and be on the road tonight. Sheriff Jason Ard: Again, if you don't have to be out – don't be out. No reason to go around sight-seeing. It's dangerous. You're going to tie up a first responder having to do a rescue on something that is not necessary when we can pay attention to what is necessary. So, again PLEASE work with us and not against us. We know sometimes this is inconvenient. But, safety first. We just want everybody to be safe. We've been through this before. We will enforce this curfew. We will use our discretion. But, go ahead and take necessary steps to prepare for this. Be prepared to possibly run into a deputy. He will question you and we will be going around visiting our businesses shortly to let them know about the curfew. Parish President Layton Ricks: We also want to encourage people – please call your family, your friends, whoever you need to talk to. We know a lot of people are still feeling the effects of 2016. We're hearing it everyday. We're seeing it in your eyes. We went through it. Law Enforcement went through it. We went through it from the workforce. We understand how everybody feels. We'll get through this. We've made it through a lot worse than what we're expecting today. Don't want to take too lightly. Want to be prepared. But, we will get through this. Sheriff Jason Ard: That's right. #Serving #Protecting
