Scheduled Fire Drill at Crawford Elementary Mistaken as Active Fire, Shooter Event

Yesterday, Crawford Elementary School conducted a scheduled required fire drill. During the drill, reports were mistaken as Active Fire and Active Shooter events.

AT NO TIME were any of the Arcadia School Complex students, faculty, or staff in any danger.

We apologize for any anxiety these false reports may have caused. We would also like to thank all the First Responder Network (Bienville Sheriff’s Office, Arcadia Police Department, Arcadia Fire Department and North Bienville Fire District) for their extremely quick response.
