WHO: All Lafourche Parish  Residents

WHAT: With ice storm warnings in effect, all citizens of Lafourche Parish are urged to register  for the public safety service, Smart911, which is available to all Lafourche Parish Residents.   Smart911 allows citizens to create a free, secure Safety Profile online that  contains important information about their household. Public safety officials can quickly leverage this data to identify potential challenges and expedite emergency response and recovery efforts during events such as ice storms, as well as to facilitate response to 9-1-1 calls.

WHY: Smart911 allows  residents of a community to share information about themselves and their families with public safety officials. This can include general data on a household – ranging from the identity of residents, locations of bedrooms and utility information – to specific details about disabilities and medical conditions requiring such things as oxygen, dialysis and more.

If a citizen dials  9-1-1, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the call taker,  allowing them to send the right response teams to the right location with the right information, expediting emergency response. A Safety Profile is safe and secure, and residents manage their own information. Sign up today at

WHEN/WHERE: Lafourche Residents can register for Smart911 online immediately and for free at
