SPECIAL NOTES FOR Cajun Navy Facebook Group. This message is not for this website. Visit and join group here.
- 1. Always call 911 first for emergencies.
- 2. As a back-up, call the emergency center for your parish. You can find that number online, typically by looking up the parish sheriff office's Facebook page where you'll see updates with numbers to call.
- 3. For non-emergencies, and as an alternate resort to 1 and 2, call GOHSEP at 225-925-7500. If you are donating or volunteering, contact local agencies for up-to-date information on where you can bring supplies, where the shelters are, etc.
- 4. If all of your options are exhausted, post your request here.
-If you are reposting, check the original post for updates. Someone may have already helped.
-Provide as much contact information as possible for the affected person and yourself.
-DO NOT post and leave, if possible. Someone may be trying to contact you. They may use Facebook, or any contact information you leave.
-Provide a summary of which numbers and organizations you've already asked for help.
Let's try to work together to get requests prioritized and as accurate as possible so that our rescuers aren't spinning their wheels when they could be helping!
