Jefferson Parish Businesses Encouraged to Review Re‐Entry Placards

Aug 26, 2012

Jefferson Parish is reminding all Jefferson Parish businesses to review or renew their re‐entry placard inventory, to ensure their staff can return as quickly as possible following an evacuation.

If a business has received placards in the past, the parish advises business to determine if they are still valid. If they have expired, authorized representatives of businesses can log-in to the Jefferson Parish Re-Entry Placard Program site at, and select "Enter the Jumpstart Jefferson Re‐Entry Application Process."

The business placard program now shares a common database with other regional parishes, so all businesses renewing or updating placards that have not updated their information since before 2011 must set up a new account, even if they have had an account previously, the parish said. Businesses that have updated or created an account after that time may select "Already Have an Account" from the site menu.

For more information, users are advised to contact the Jefferson Parish Emergency Management Department at (504) 349‐5360.
