PORT ALLEN, La. (West Side Journal) – Expect a large law enforcement presence at Port Allen High School on Wednesday, April 7 for a School Planning Exercise being held by West Baton Rouge Parish Government and School Board.
An emergency scenario will play out beginning that morning, ending with the unification of schools and a press conference at the Port Allen Community Center. The exercise will provide information and test the plans the parish and schools have developed to respond to emergency situations, said Anthony Summers, Assistant Director of WBR Homeland Security, Emergency Preparedness and 9-1-1.
There will be no threat to students or the public, but please expect to see increased activity and law enforcement presence in the area that may cause traffic congestion.
