All local governments are required by FEMA to update their Hazard Mitigation Plans every five years. Information in the plan will be used to help guide and coordinate mitigation and local policy decisions affecting future land use. The Plaquemines Parish Hazard Mitigation Plan is a single jurisdictional plan that covers the unincorporated communities of Belle Chasse, Boothville, Buras, Empire, Pointe a la Hache, Port Sulphur, Triumph, and Venice, among others. Multi-Jurisdictional requirements are not required nor addressed in this plan update.
The 2020 Plaquemines Parish Hazard Mitigation Plan Update was written by the Stephenson Disaster Management Institute, Louisiana State University.
