Community Alert Broadcast System

The Iberville Parish Community Alert Broadcast System is tested on the first Monday of each month at 10:00 AM. If a real emergency exists, follow these steps:

1. Seek shelter indoors
2. Tune to Radio Station 1610 & 1620 AM, and / or Cable T.V.
3. Wait for telephone safety advisory message.
4. Do not use the telephone for non-emergency calls.


27 sirens can be sounded throughout the parish in the event of an emergency.
Tone alert systems are located at the school board office, prisons, and nursing homes for direct notification.

Stay indoors, inside your house or nearby building and close all windows and doors.
Turn off heating or cooling system and attic fans. (Use your heating or cooling system only to protect life or health.)
Do not use fireplaces.
Stay indoors until you receive official notice that it is safe to go out, or you are asked to leave the area, and keep your pets indoors.
If you must go outside protect your breathing. Place a damp cloth or towel over your nose and mouth. Fold the cloth over several times.
Stay tuned to cable television and/or tune your radio to 1610 or 1620 AM
