Hurricane Preparedness Resources 2023

Updated: Jul 31, 2023

It is hurricane season, and whether or not New Orleans experiences any major storms this season, now is a good time to make sure you're prepared.

In the aftermath of a Hurricane, Broadmoor Improvement Association would like to resume operations to support our community. The BIA needs individuals to come along side us! The BIA will organize volunteer crews to help residents who need support by providing the following: disaster relief supplies, tools from the Tool Lending Library, and food from our Broadmoor Food Pantry and Community Gardens. Fill out our Get Involved in Broadmoor form to join us in the aftermath of a hurricane.

Make a plan for what you will do in the event of a major storm, including gathering the supplies you might need to shelter in place and making an evacuation plan. Learn more about how to make your hurricane preparedness plan here.

In the event of a major storm in New Orleans, the Broadmoor Improvement Association will send updates to our neighbors via text message. If you're not already signed up to receive text updates from the BIA, email to be added to the list.
