Public Awareness

About Us

In times of emergency, communications play a vital part in ensuring the proper response and handling of an event. For this reason, the Plaquemines Parish Government (PPG) has established a formal Public Awareness Office.

The PPG Public Information Office functions as a resource for the public and for representatives of all news media (local, national, international, broadcast or print).


The primary objective of the PPG Public Awareness Office is to provide accurate, concise, and timely information to the public that is directly related to or impacts public safety. The Public Information Office is also involved in publicizing, highlighting, and promoting the goals and accomplishments of the Plaquemines Parish Government.
