Sheriff Richardson urges caution

Sheriff Jayson Richardson urges residents to be mindful of the risk the area currently faces as it pertains to Wild Fires. Many adjacent areas to the south are already facing severe conditions due to swiftly spreading fires. Although it has been nice not having to mow every 15 minutes, this drought has severely put the area at risk.

Rain is not in the forecast for quite some time. The Parish wide Burn Ban is now a State Wide Burn Ban, and there are major concerns that any small spark could spread rapidly and even become deadly. Sheriff Richardson asks that all residents work together to prevent such disasters from taking place in our communities.
