Louisiana Emergency Preparedness Guides

The Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (Parish OHSEP), American Red Cross and select United Way offices have copies of the Louisiana Emergency Preparedness Guides, available for distribution. The guides were developed by the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) and are intended for the Greater New Orleans, Lafayette & Lake Charles citizens who will use the maps and contra-flow routes to evacuate when disasters threaten the coastal areas.

Each American Red Cross and United Way chapter has specific locations they work with for distribution.
