Mayor Broome's Statement to First Responders

Baton Rouge, LA – March 18, 2020 – As we face the unprecedented challenges presented by COVID-19, I want to assure our first responders that their safety is my top priority. I want to take a moment to thank our first responders for the sacrifices they make for East Baton Rouge Parish on a daily basis, as well as the sacrifices they are continuing to face in the presence of crisis.

I have been in constant communication with department leaders to make sure that our first responders are informed and prepared for situations they may face in the near future. We have established a facility to house first responders that may have been exposed to the virus when responding to emergencies.

The Mayor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is in the process of acquiring more Personal Protective Equipment so our first responders can continue to ensure their personal safety.

The Emergency Operation Center will continue to monitor the status and effects of COVID-19 in our community.
