BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) -

You could soon get a call from the State of Louisiana asking you about your hurricane evacuation plans. 

The Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) wants citizens to participate in what it calls an important hurricane evacuation phone survey. The survey will be conducted during August, September and October. LSU's Stephenson Disaster Management Institute will oversee the study that looks to study individual preparedness actions.

If you get a call, the state says answering the questions will take about 22 minutes. The state says "LSU" will appear on phones with Caller ID enabled. The calls will be made to both residential and cellular numbers.

Here are some of the questions that will be asked:
-Will you evacuate or stay?

-Where will you go?

-How will you get there?

-Do you know your evacuation route?

GOHSEP says the answers will help the state better understand the public's evacuation decision making process, evacuation intent, transportation needs and expectations when returning home.

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

For more information on help making your hurricane evacuation plans visit the state's website getagameplan.org.
