The Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Department has received a new mobile command post from the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

The Department says the donation of the 2020 Grey Wolf camper arrived on May 3.

The 27-foot camper was retro fitted into a mobile command post and will be utilized for search and rescue, hostage situations, natural disasters and festivals.

The mobile command post will be equipped with radios, laptop computers and gear that deputies need to use in the event of an emergency situation, the sheriff's office says.

Sheriff Charles R. Guillory says he is grateful to have the camper donated to the department.
