President McInnis is urging all Parish citizens to begin their personal preparations for the potential threats imposed by Tropical Storm Sally.

As always, these assets will be moved inside the system on the westbound lane.

Everbridge Notification System

St. Bernard Parish uses Everbridge emergency notification system to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, fires, floods and other emergencies, to more routine announcements, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. Messages will be sent to residents on their preferred contact paths—cell phone, SMS, home phone, email, fax, pager and more—to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information.
