Emergency Preparedness


The Port of South Louisiana’s Marine Operations Department has the planning and training to mitigate, prevent, prepare, and respond to an emergency within our jurisdiction. We work alongside all local, state, and federal agencies to help ensure safe passage within the district and recently entered into a cooperative endeavor within our local law enforcement agencies -St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, and St. James- to add an extra layer of security.

The Port of South Louisiana’s Marine Operations Department
is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In the event of an emergency, call
985-536-1118 (MSOC – primary for all emergencies) or 1-866-536-3678 (Marine Operations Barge)

In the event of a major crisis and/or official Port of South Louisiana closure, important information will be posted below on the PORT STATUS page.
