BATON ROUGE – The Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is conducting a study on Hurricane Preparedness.

LSU's Stephenson Disaster Management Institute will be conducting a phone survey on individual preparedness actions. The survey will be conducted during August, September and October. The average phone survey will take 22 minutes depending on the responses/experiences from participants.

Calls will be made to residents in Ascension, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Terrebonne Parishes.

"LSU" will appear in the caller ID and survey calls will be made to both cell and residential lines.

Topics on the survey will include:

- Will you evacuate or stay?

- Where will you go?

- How will you get there?

- Do you know your evacuation route?

The information gathered from the surveys will be used to help understand the public's evacuation decision-making process, evacuation intent, transportation needs and the expectations when returning home.
