Bossier public safety agencies will conduct an emergency disaster exercise on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at the Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets beginning at 7:30 a.m.

As a result there will be a contingency of emergency response vehicles arriving on the property in the vicinity of the Regal Cinema with lights and sirens activated.  There will also be a brief period of simulated gunfire involved and smoke may be seen in the area as well. The public is advised not to be alarmed, as this will only be a drill. The exercise will conclude well before the Boardwalk opens for business.

The Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is coordinating this exercise in an effort to enhance emergency response and readiness procedures for Boardwalk management and first responders.

Media wishing to cover the exercise are advised to arrive at the site indicated on the attached map that day no later than 7 a.m.
