Description:

This office is responsible for the preparation before an event occurs, the responding and managing of an event, and the supporting and rebuilding after an event. Response relies in part on the perception of risk of those exposed. Effective emergency management relies on thorough integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government involvement. Activities at each level (individual, group, community) affect the other levels.

Central point for emergency planning within the Parish
Plans and participates in a variety of emergency drills
Maintains and operates the Emergency Operations Center for use by officials during emergency situations
Works closely with local emergency organizations including Southwest Louisiana Mutual Aid Association, Community Awareness and Emergency Response (CAER), Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), the Southwest Louisiana Hurricane Task Force, Louisiana Office of Emergency Preparedness and the American Red Cross
OHSEP is the central coordinating agency for all outside assistance in emergency situations [e.g. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Response Commission (NRC)]
