Bring T-Gator to your school

The Louisiana Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (LOHSEP) has developed a program called “Get a Game Plan” to reach Louisiana citizens, businesses, and even our children, to help us be prepared in the event of an emergency.

GOHSEP has reached out to each parish with an active Citizen Corps program, and Tangipahoa Parish is included.  The Tangipahoa Parish Citizen Corps is presenting a children’s version of the “Get a Game Plan” program to schools in the parish, with T-Gator as the mascot.  Any school may request the program, which has been a big hit so far.  The organization has made presentations at Independence Head Start, Holy Ghost Catholic School, and the Tangipahoa Economic Development Foundation luncheon.

 For more information or to request the program at your school, please contact Vickie Travis at (985) 748-3211.
