I have now been assigned to work at the Homeland Security and Preparedness Offices (EOC) to act as the liaison between the Chapter and other agencies. This will be my new assignment until redirected.
Today we have been coordinating the return of evacuees to 4 parishes (Lafayette, Jefferson Davis, Acadia, and Calcasieu). They will be transported back by bus. As evacuees were initially admitted into the shelters color bar-coded arm bands were placed on their arms according to their home (parish). Pets will also be bused back shortly after the residents are on their way home. Their kennels have been labeled according to their home parish as well.
That’s all for now. Hope all is well in the Carolinas!
