                     IT’S HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEEK!  GET READY!

Mathews, LA – This week marks Hurricane Preparedness Week and Lafourche Parish Government is encouraging all citizens to prepare for the coming 2016 Atlantic basin hurricane season.  “Many of our citizens are seasoned veterans when it comes to dealing with hurricanes, however, it’s never a bad thing to refresh what steps you’ll take when it comes to possibly evacuating or sheltering in place for a storm,” Lafourche Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle said.
“We’re always encouraging people to get a plan together, plan ahead, so you’ll be ready to act should a storm head our way.”

Lafourche Parish emergency management officials encourage citizens with special needs or individuals who will require transportation in an evacuation situation to call 985/537-7603 or
985/532-8174 to register their names and addresses for assistance and pick up.

Among the websites citizens can visit to assist in storm planning are getagameplan.org, nhc.noaa.gov/prepare and ready.gov/hurricanes.
