Winter Weather Advisory

snow in wfpSheriff Austin Daniel is advising all parish residents to be prepared for a hard freeze expected later this week.  According to the National Weather Service, a winter blast of dangerously low temperatures will arrive Wednesday night with lows expected to be in the upper teens to lower 20s both Thursday and Friday mornings.  Coupled with very low wind chill values, this event will be the coldest experienced so far this season. 

Sheriff Daniel is asking all residents to take precautions now to be prepared to deal with the cold weather.  “We’re asking everyone to not only take care of their pipes, plants, and pets, but to also check on neighbors or others that may need assistance.”   

The West Feliciana Office of Homeland Security advises residents to prepare for winter weather by following these recommendations:

·        Prescription medicine

·        Food and water, especially foods that don’t require cooking

·        Flashlights with extra batteries

·        Baby items such as diapers and formula

·        Extra pet food and a warm shelter for pets

·        Cover outdoor pipes that may be exposed to freezing temperatures

·        Minimize travel, but if you must get out use extreme caution

·        Make sure space heaters are placed in safe locations inside your home

·        Never use a generator, grill, camp stove or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or a charcoal burning device inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace or any partially enclosed area. Keep these devices outside at least 20 feet from doors, windows, and intake vents.

·        Keep fire extinguishers on hand, and make sure everyone in your house knows how to use them.


According to the National Weather Service, there isn’t a threat of precipitation along with this winter weather event, so it is unlikely that we will see snow.   

Sheriff Daniel says, “Our offices will be available 24 hours a day to assist anyone should the need arise. Please don’t hesitate to call us at our 24 hour dispatch center by dialing 9-1-1 for emergencies or 225-784-3136 for non-emergencies. Use caution and be wise when deciding whether to get out in this weather.”

Tipsy Taxi Service

tipsy-taxi-logoDuring this holiday season, the West Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office will be providing "Tipsy Taxi", a service designed to prevent parish residents from drinking and driving.

The program is in its eleventh year, and Sheriff Daniel says it has cut down on the number of drunk driver arrests. "This is by no means meant to encourage residents to drink, but hopefully it will reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roadways.”

Tipsy Taxi will only be provided inside West Feliciana Parish from December 19, 2014 through January 4, 2015.

To take advantage of the Tipsy Taxi service, call Dispatch 24/7 at 225-784-3136. You will be asked to provide your name, your current location, and your home address. A deputy will be dispatched to pick you up and take you home.

Please enjoy your holiday safely and take advantage of this service.
