Iberia Parish could soon be part of 20-parish emergency aid alliance

Posted: Updated:
IBERIA PARISH, La. -

Iberia Parish could soon be a part of a 20-parish emergency aid alliance.

Parish President Larry Richard is introducing a resolution at tonight's council meeting to add Iberia Parish to the list of surrounding parishes in a Multi-Parish Emergency Mutual Aid and Assistance Agreement.

The alliance is essentially a network of resources in times of emergency.

"For example, if something happens in Iberia Parish and we need a particular type of equipment that we may not have, some of the parishes that are in this particular agreement may have it," said Larry Richard, Parish President. "They're going to be paying attention to the emergency that's taking place as well. So, they can actually send their equipment here if it's equipment that we need. It could be personnel."
