***SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS***
Plaquemines Parish Residents,
Do you require transportation assistance during a tropical event evacuation? Knowing what to do during a tropical event is your best protection and your responsibility.
The Plaquemines Parish Government Critical Transportation Needs Evacuation Plan assists individuals who do not have transportation to evacuate when recommended by Emergency Management planners for tropical events. A combination of bus routes and satellite collection points will be used to pick up and organize the evacuees. Plaquemines Parish Government has pre-determined several satellite collection points throughout the Parish. The locations of these sites will be release in the event of a tropical system
All participating evacuees will be picked up at the satellite locations and transported to the Parish Pickup Point, offloaded from the buses and registered into the evacuation process. Evacuees will then board onto different buses for transfer to a shelter.
Pre-Registration for transportation assistance is available and recommended. To pre-register with us call 504-274-2470 and leave your name, address, a number of pets, (only dogs & cats) and your contact information for follow-up.
