Patterson urges First Call usage

Residents must register for First Call, the parish’s emergency communication system, in order to be notified of an emergency situation.

The system is utilized by municipalities or parish officials to alert an area as small as a single street of a water break, or the entire parish of an evacuation order.

Patterson residents, in particular, are asked to register as the municipality has just come online with the system.

To register, visit or go to the parish’s Office of Emergency Preparedness website and follow the link for the emergency notification system at the right.

If you do not have Internet capabilities, call your municipality’s city hall or the OEP office at 337-828-4100, ext. 135.
