NR 012
Release Date:
September 6, 2020

BATON ROUGE, La.  – A drive-thru Disaster Recovery Center will open in Jefferson Davis Parish on Monday, Sept. 7 to help Hurricane Laura survivors.

Different from the standard in-person facility, the new feature of the centers is an easy and COVID-safe way for Hurricane Laura survivors to have documents scanned into their case file.

The drive-thru is staffed with FEMA personnel who are available to scan documents, assist with registration, and answer questions about disaster assistance programs.

The center operates under strict COVID-19 protocols to ensure visitors are safe. Masks or face coverings are required for entry and service. Survivors remain in their cars. A specialist wearing a face mask will receive documents through the window and return them.

No appointments are necessary. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

The drive-thru center is located at:

Lacassine High School

409 Algonia Ave.

Lacassine, LA 70650


Another drive-thru center is also operating 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. It’s located at:

Calcasieu Parish School Board
