During the height of an emergency, whether you are waiting out a tropical event or hazards material emergency, the most important thing you can do is to continue monitoring the event via television or radio and make sure your employees are as safe as possible, especially if there is a shelter-in-place order.
Your management team should also be reviewing and discussing your business contingency plan as events develop to ensure you are prepared to resume business as quickly as you can once the emergency is declared over.
Plaquemines Parish cannot stress enough the urgency that you or someone on your management team register a cell phone on the Parishes’ Emergency Notification System. This will ensure that you are notified of all emergency messages coming from the Parish. It is quick and easy and is a free service.
