Learn How to Protect Your Family with Smart 911 System at August 11 Luncheon

In an emergency, seconds count. That is why our local parishess are pleased to now offer residents the opportunity to set up Safety Profiles via a new "Smart 911" system.  Smart 911 allows residents to provide critical details about their households and those who live there in advance, providing valuable information to first responders when and if an emergency occurs.

Join us for our Monday, August 11 BIG luncheon as Gary Foret from Lafourche 911 and Mark Boudreaux from Terrebonne 911 explain Smart 911 and how to set up your Safety Profile.

The meeting begins at Noon on at the Bayou Country Club in Thibodaux. We hope to see you and your guests there!
