*THIS IS A PRESS RELEASE FOR A TRAINING EXERCISE. THIS IS NOT A REAL EVENT.*
This is Mayor Becky Ames. Our Beaumont Emergency Operations Center is working with multiple state and federal agencies on several major incidents with fatalities. We have a reunification center for families located at the Lamar University Softball Field Parking Lot as well as at the Theodore R. Johns Library (4255 Fannett Road) for the Lafin Road Event. Paradise Baptist Church (4390 Fannett Road) is where media should stage for the Lafin Event. We are asking our citizens to please shelter in place and continue to monitor vetted news sources. Thank you and be safe.
