ST. AMANT – National Guard truck with Ascension Parish deputies will be patrolling the streets of St. Amant Wednesday night.

Fire Chief James LeBlanc advised residents to remain aware of people traveling around their property. Leblanc says that residents should question people, ask who they are, record numbers from boats and take pictures of vehicles to help identify people.

“If they say, ‘I am looking for John’ and you have no John that lives around you, these people have no reason in your area,” Leblanc said. “Dial 911 and report them ASAP.”

Leblanc said that he also had a meeting with Governor John Bel Edwards Wednesday.

“I will tell you, words cannot describe the feeling I got when the Governor spoke about the help they are requesting for all areas,” Leblanc said.

All operations have been moved to the Grande Venue Hall on Hwy 431. “St. Amant Ground Zero” will be operating emergency services for the St. Amant Community for “the next couple weeks, months, etc.”
