If your company or organization will need to re-enter Jefferson Parish prior to the general public after a mandatory evacuation, a re-entry permit/placard is required. All businesses are encouraged to review your placard inventory to ensure that your business has the necessary placards in advance of an emergency. The program has been updated and now shares a common database with our regional parishes.

PLEASE NOTE: Only designated company employees will be allowed re-entry during Tier-1 and Tier-2. Family members and non-employees may NOT use Tier-1 and Tier-2 re-entry placards. If you need to apply, please do so now. Do not wait until a storm approaches. There is processing time required for the applications.
