Flood Awareness Information:

Helping the citizens of Sorrento learn how to prepare for emergencies is a priority. The Ascension Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (AP OHSEP) has produced the all-hazards preparedness guide to generate public awareness and encourage you to develop your own readiness for your family. We hope this guide will help prepare you and your family to be ready in case of a major disaster.  Being prepared for an emergency can reduce the possibility of personal injury, loss of life and damage to property. Know your flood warnings signals, create an emergency plan, and prepare a disaster supply kit. To find out more information on flood warnings and emergency preparedness; contact your local Emergency Preparedness office or see below for more flood awareness information.
