Sandbags available throughout Bossier for residents
Bossier Parish residents, especially those in extreme southern and northern parts of the parish, who find themselves needing sandbags are reminded they don’t have to drive to Benton in order to pick up the items that could help prevent flooding of their homes and property.
Sandbags are also available at four satellite locations strategically located in the parish. Storage bins are placed at Fire District 1 station on Highway 80 East in Haughton, at south Bossier Fire District 2 on Robertson Road near Elm Grove, at McKinley Avenue in Haughton and W. Palmetto in Plain Dealing. Bags are available on a self-service basis.
Two storage bins are also located at the Police Jury highway maintenance facility at 410 Mayfield St. in Benton.
Individuals who need to pick up sandbags from a satellite location should call the chief of their fire district or the mayors in Haughton and Plain Dealing.
