The CalcaShout Emergency Alert System is a free service of the Police Jury that puts the latest emergency information in the palm of subscribers' hands wherever they may be. CalcaShout will alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, fires, floods and other emergencies, to more routine announcements, such as road closures.
Messages will be sent to residents on their preferred contact platform - cell phone, SMS, home phone, email, fax, pager and more - to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information. Residents that have a "landline" are already automatically subscribed to alerts by phone, but CalcaShout allows residents to self-register, provide additional contact information or opt out.
The CalcaShout Emergency Alert System is voluntary and is also a free service powered by Everbridge. The emergency contact information in the system is not displayed in a public directory, or used for any other purposes.
Residents may sign-up their contact information and preferred methods of alerts at www.calcashout.com. If a resident cannot access the internet, or has trouble entering their information, they may call the Office of Emergency Preparedness at 337.721.3800.Sign up for CalcaShout here.
