St. John the Baptist Parish - St. John the Baptist 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.
“The survey may be lengthy, however we are encouraging residents to utilize this opportunity to relay to state and local agencies as to what works and doesn’t work regarding hurricane preparedness and response,” said St. John Communications Director Baileigh Rebowe Helm. "Please take the time to answer survey questions if your residence is called."
