Blue tarps issued, call OEP if you need assistance

Liz Hill, director of the Office of Emergency Preparedness, said they did issue blue tarps to parish residents last week at the parish barn.

The parish may issue tarps again if necessary, but not until the work week begins. If you need a tarp, please call her office at 363-3267 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., weekdays, for more information.

The blue tarp program is done through FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). Hurricane Gustav left an estimated 20,000 Louisiana structures in need of some sort of roofing assistance. FEMA has assigned the Operation Blue Roof mission to the Army Corps of Engineers.
