Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana – In preparation for potential flooding and severe weather conditions, the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury has announced that they are offering sand and bags free of charge to residents at various locations throughout the parish. This initiative aims to assist residents in safeguarding their properties and minimizing potential damage.

Residents can find sandbag locations at the following addresses:

While sand and bags are provided, it is important to note that residents must bring their own shovels and fill the bags themselves. Additionally, no outside equipment other than shovels will be allowed on the sandbagging sites.

To ensure that everyone has access to the resources, residents are requested to limit their sandbag collection to 15 bags per person if there are long lines. However, individuals are permitted to return to the line for multiple trips if needed.

The parish staff will be present at each location to maintain safety operations and ensure a steady supply of sand and bags.
