Local OEM plan being updated, public invited to planning meeting Jan. 24


Natchitoches Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, in partnership with The Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness and the Stephenson Disaster Management Institute at LSU, is in the process of updating the Natchitoches plan. The Natchitoches Parish Hazard Mitigation Multi-Jurisdictional Plan describes the naturally occurring risks to the region and outlines strategies to reduce these risks to save lives, reduce property damage, and lessen the impact of future disasters.

Are you passionate about building a more resilient future for your parish? Do you have questions about the natural hazards your community is at risk to? Then attend a public meeting, Tuesday Jan. 24, at 11 a.m. to learn more and share input on the risks and vulnerabilities that most impact you and your community.  The meeting takes place in the Natchitoches Community District building located at 911 Public Safety Blvd.

Natchitoches Parish residents are also asked to participate in a survey about public perceptions and opinions regarding natural hazards in the parish. Go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NatchitochesHM2022 to complete the survey.
