Nursing home residents from Beauregard Parish evacuated to Sabine Parish due to ongoing wildfires
SABINE PARISH, La. (KSLA) - A number of nursing home residents from Beauregard Parish have been moved to Sabine Parish due to the wildfires in the area.
Late Saturday night (Aug. 26), officials helped move about 30 residents to Sabine Retirement and Rehabilitation in Many and Toledo Nursing Center in Zwolle. This was done out of an abundance of caution as emergency crews continue to fight massive wildfires in Beauregard Parish.
Patients were moved with all their equipment, including mechanical beds, breathing machines, wheelchairs, and many other items.
At this time, it’s unclear how long the patients will remain in Sabine Parish before it’s safe to move them back to Beauregard.
