A fire alarm at a Florida Georgia Line concert at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena briefly caused a panic, but officials said everything was safe.
The incident occurred shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday as the band was onstage.
Amy Simpson, a concertgoer, told First Coast News that the band ran off-stage and people started running out of the arena.
The concert was briefly stalled, but people were let back into the show as the alarms turned off.
An arena official said that everyone was safe following the incident.
SMG, the management company for the arena, issued the following statement Friday:
“Last night during the Florida-Georgia Line concert at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, an alarm was triggered which caused a temporary delay in the show. We are conducting a thorough review of the safety protocols at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena to ensure that proper procedures were followed last night. In addition, we have begun a full building alarm systems review to determine the exact source of the alarm and to assess performance of the alarm and notifications systems at the JVMA.”
