St. Tammany Parish Government is Prepared

 

Parish President Pat Brister and Parish Government's emergency operations personnel are asking that all citizens monitor changing weather conditions, prepare for several days this week of extremely cold temperatures, and the possibility of frozen precipitation. With a Hazardous Weather Outlook being forecast by the National Weather Service in Slidell, conditions could deteriorate and should be taken seriously.

 

The Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is in close contact with the National Weather Service and is continuing to monitor the situation. Parish Government is practiced and prepared for these kinds of conditions, and is asking that it's residents also...

 

Be Prepared:

  • Tammany Utilities advises that in the event of a Hard Freeze Warning, all residents should take the necessary precautions, like wrapping their pipes, to prevent them from freezing and potentially bursting.
  • Parish Government is also urging residents with elderly individuals in their families to make certain they have a safe and effective way to heat their residences.
  • Furthermore, they are asking residents if they know of at-risk families or neighbors that could fall victim to severe cold weather, to please check on them during the evening and morning hours to confirm their safety.
  • The Department of Animal Services asks pet and livestock owners to take precautions to safeguard the well-being of animals in their care, including bringing pets indoors and preventing water sources from freezing over for livestock.
