The West Baton Rouge Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness in partnership with International Consulting Group (ICG) have been updating the 2005 Hazard Mitigation Plan. This current plan expires on 3/17/2011. The plan update is required in order to meet the requirements of the federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 and ensures the parish eligibility for certain federal disaster assistance programs.


The plan update process includes; identification and profiling of hazards, assessment of risks affecting the planning community and identification of preventative measures that will reduce the impact of natural hazards in the future.


The plan update is funded by the Governorís Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) as well as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).


Five public meetings were held in order to solicit input from local residents, stakeholders, private industry, business leaders, parish elected officials, and elected officials from all municipalities. These meetings were held at the West Baton Rouge Parish Council Chambers, located at 880 N Alexander Avenue, Port Allen, LA 70767.
