Disasters can be in the form of weather related events, such as a hurricane or tornado, or a man-made event, such as a terrorist attack. Regardless of the cause, the Plaquemines Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness have a goal and that is to provide its residents and businesses with all the necessary information needed to plan for an emergency of any kind.
We encourage you to review the information provided on this website as it gives specific information on issues we know are important to you; instructions on everything from sheltering-in-place to mandatory evacuations to specific information on how to return properly to the Parish after a mandatory evacuation order has been lifted. We also encourage you to sign up for the Parish Emergency Notification Alerts, an emergency message sent to your home or cell phone in the event of an emergency.
As we continue to stress throughout the Parish, we must always plan for the unexpected.
