To better prepare the citizens we serve, the Mayor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (MOHSEP) annually hosts Red Stick Ready Day. By partnering with multiple agencies throughout the Parish, this event allows for an opportunity to share important public safety information to the citizens of East Baton Rouge Parish. Red Stick Ready Day also offers representatives of these agencies an opportunity to become familiar and better inform the citizens we serve in emergency response efforts.
