_____________________________________ 

Your Chapter has arranged a valuable tour of the Jefferson Parish Emergency Operations Center and Emergency Telecommunications (911) Call Center.

 


The building can withstand 200 mile-per-hour winds and sustain a task force of 125 to 150 people for 14 days without any contact with the outside world. There are fully operating showers, laundry units and 88 beds on the second floor and another dormitory on the third. A contractor has been hired to cook meals on an emergency basis. Two generators power the building from the top floor -- one is hooked to Gretna's power grid and the other, as a matter of precaution, is attached to Harvey's. The building has its own water tank, and a ground well also has been excavated.  The building is located at 910 Third St. in Gretna, Louisiana.

We will tour the EOC starting at 1:00 pm.  At the completion of the EOC tour, we will proceed to the Emergency Telecommunications (911) Call Center.  Space is limited so please RSVP early.

 

NOTE: Lunch is NOT included with this Program
