Every business should have a plan. Get ready now.


How quickly your company can get back to business after a hurricane, flood or even a terrorist attack, often depends on emergency planning done well in advance. Though each situation is unique, any organization can be better prepared if it plans carefully, puts emergency procedures in place, and practices for all kinds of emergencies. Regardless of the emergency, there is something every individual can do to limit their risk, get a game plan.

Get A Game Plan

The first thing you need to do as a business owner, is to make sure you or someone on your management team has signed up for the Plaquemines Parish Emergency Notification System so that in the case of an emergency, you are immediately alerted.

Sign up for the Plaquemines Parish Emergency Notification System (PPENS), the reverse 911 notification system


For re-entry into the Parish after a mandatory evacuation, once an emergency order has been lifted, Plaquemines Parish will advise when it is safe for someone from your business to enter the Parish so you can prepare your business to reopen.

Make sure you have registered your business with the Re-Entry Network

Plaquemines Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is available to meet with you to discuss how you can safeguard your business for any emergency.
