JP leaders take up emergency plans for first responders

JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (WVUE) - Jefferson Parish leaders will take up emergency plans to help first responders Wednesday.

An emergency ordinance on the council agenda would require the parish to put together a list of contact information for certain multi-family units with gate codes that could cost valuable seconds in an emergency.

The ordinance would mean people who fail to provide that information could eventually be cited.

The council meets in Grand Isle ahead of Thursday's start of the Tarpon Rodeo.
