The Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness wants you to be safe this hurricane season. As you are gearing up for Tropical Storm / Hurricane Barry, remember that help is at your fingertips. The free 'Get A Game Plan' App is available through the App Store or Google Play, and contains important emergency plans for families, kids, businesses, and mitigation.

There is a wealth of information that you can use in the next couple of days, including evacuation information, important numbers, how to prepare an emergency kit, what to bring with you in case you have to evacuate, and how to help after the event is over.

They even have podcasts with valuable information for you to listen to. Now is the time to get prepared, y'all, so download the app today, and good luck to all my fellow Louisiana citizens during hurricane season!
