Emergency Exercise Will Empty Public Buildings Wednesday

Evacuation Practice At Courthouse Complex
LABELLE, FL. -- On Wednesday, March 19th 2014, Hendry County Emergency Management, in cooperation with Southwest Florida Safety Consulting, Inc., will be conducting a live evacuation exercise of the School Board, Judicial, and Administrative buildings in the Hendry County Courthouse Complex, 25E Hickpochee Avenue, LaBelle, Florida. 

The exercise is in response to a test of the written evacuation plan. In the event of an emergency that would require the evacuation of the building(s) for the safety of the employees and public, the written plan gives direction on how to accomplish the task.

Emergency Management has made news outlets and other agencies aware of the event and the fact that it is an Exercise drill and not an actual event or real emergency. The following agencies will be participating: Hendry County School Board, Clerk of Circuit Courts, Tax Collectors Office, Supervisor of Elections Office, Administrative Office of the Courts, Facilities Maintenance, LaBelle Fire Department, Hendry County EMS, Hendry County Sheriff’s Office, and Hendry County Emergency Management, said Lupe Taylor, of the Hendry Emergency Management Office.
