emergency prep

Hurricane season preparedness! 

Pre Disaster check List – Check and update every May 

Beginning in May, South Louisiana residents should pre-register for DSNAP (disaster food stamps) at www.dcfs.louisiana.gov/cafe 

Pre-registration for DSNAP will speed up the application for DSNAP if there is a disaster. And you may not have access to the needed documentation after a disaster!
