FEMA Offers Business Specific Disaster Preparedness Tips
Check out FEMA's "Preparedness Planning for Your Business" five-step plan to getting you and your business prepared.
Re-Entry Placard Application
Own a business? Do you have your placard to re-enter New Orleans after any mandatory evacuation? Apply for re-entry status, update your information and receive your credentials at City of New Orleans Re-entry Application Process.
Business owners must register for re-entry ASAP to ensure they have their credentials prior to any type of evacuation. Re-entry placards are good for two years; if you received one in 2012, you do not need to apply again in the 2013 season. All businesses that did not receive a re-entry placard in 2012 must apply in the 2013 season.
See Coming Home for additional information and FAQ about Re-Entry Placards.
