Welcome to Tangipahoa! We are home to approximately 130,000 happy residents and enjoy welcoming new families and businesses to our parish. We believe in a customer service mindset encouraging everyone here to be hospitable, welcoming and helpful.
Understanding that a move can be stressful, we aim to provide information to help make your transition as smooth as possible. Below you will find a list of helpful resources that any resident may be in need of during an emergency. Please know that in the time of an emergency, there is a red banner across the top of the homepage of the tangipahoa.org website with a link that will take you to a page dedicated to all emergency related updates.
When an emergency is declared, often the “Emergency Operations Center” (EOC) https://tangipahoa.org/
government/emergency-preparedness/about-the-EOC is activated. This is a world-class, state-of-the-art facility designed to provide a centralized location for all responder agencies in the Parish to gather and provide a coordinated response in times of emergency.
