Emergency Alerts

This section is reserved for up-to-date notifications, in case of an emergency.

To be prepared visit our Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness webpage.


In June of 2020 Washington Parish Emergency Notification System was put in operation.  This alert system provides rapid notification of emergency, critical events and urgent situations.   If you haven’t already done so, below are three ways you can sign up for Washington Parish’s new emergency alert system. The alert system can send notifications through the following methods: call, text, email or TTY/TTD service for the hearing impaired. Landline phones are automatically enrolled for alerts; however, to receive alerts through your mobile phone or email, you must register through one of the options below. You may also want to download the Hyper-Reach Anywhere app on your smartphone. It is a free app that allows users to manage and monitor alerts for multiple addresses, such as home, work, or family/friends. If you need assistance enrolling or have any questions, please let me know. I’d be happy to help!

To enroll:

Calling (985) 282-2620
Text “Alert” to (985) 282-2620
