The Caddo Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness has activated its 24-hour Emergency Operations Center to coordinate a unified agency response to the winter weather event.
Sheriff Steve Prator, Director of Caddo OHSEP, said a representative from each of the following agencies will maintain a presence in the EOC until the weather event has passed and will serve as the strategic decision-making body for emergency and disaster response:
Caddo sheriff’s deputies, City of Shreveport fire, police, and water personnel and other emergency responders have been working throughout the inclement weather to serve citizens.
Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins said Water and Sewerage crews are working to repair burst pipes and water main breaks throughout the city. Frozen pipes, bursts and main breaks are the cause for low to no water pressure across the Shreveport. Residents are asked to allow faucets to drip, not flow fully, to keep water lines open.
