HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS SURVEY: St. John Parish will join parishes across South Louisiana, LSU and the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) in reaching out to residents beginning in August to conduct a hurricane preparedness survey.
The phone survey, which will come entirely through LSU, will consist of questions about individual preparedness plans and will be conducted in the months of August, September and October.
Feedback from the survey will be used to gauge whether south Louisiana residents are taking the correct protective measures in preparation for a storm and will be used to help state and local officials better coordinate preparedness activities.
A host of government officials from St. John the Baptist Parish and Tangipahoa, including St. John Parish President Natalie Robottom, were on hand to mark the occasion, along with several project organizers.
“We’ve been working to build up the Frenier area for a while now to allow for all types of activities,” Robottom said. “We want to try to make it a safer place for people to walk, to run, to ride bikes. The signage is a big first step.”- See more at: http://www.lobservateur.com/2016/01/16/st-john-clearing-path-for-bicyclists/#sthash.bFseOGV9.dpufhttps://www.epa.gov/la/laplace-st-john-baptist-parish-louisiana
