Emergency Shelter

of last resort

Emergency Sheltering Hurricane Ida

With Hurricane IDA now predicted to make landfall as a category 4 coupled with storm surge predictions it is increasingly likely that shelters of last resort will need to be opened to displaced families that do not have anywhere else to go.

If you would be willing to assist local and parish officials in the operation of this shelter of last resort, please contact Travis Tharp as soon as possible to be placed on a response team:

Travis Tharp at (225)485-5845 or by email ttharp@cityofdenhamsprings-com

If helping your community through sheltering interest you, and you have not yet received training through the American Red Cross you can still help out, you will be teamed up with someone who has received training.
