Travel Trailer/Mobile Home Safety

 

No travel trailer or mobile home - no matter how new it is - can be a safe shelter from storm force winds.

  • FEMA travel trailers and mobile homes are the property of the federal government.

  • FEMA travel trailers and mobile homes may not be moved.

  • The unauthorized movement, and any resulting damage, to FEMA travel trailers or mobile homes may be prosecuted under federal law.

  • The state encourages all travel trailer and mobile home residents to follow all guidance from parish emergency managers.

  • State law allows for privately owned travel trailers and RV vehicles to be moved during evacuations.

  • The State of Louisiana strongly urges those who must move their personal trailer or RV to do so before an evacuation order is given.

  • Privately owned trailers over 8'6" wide, 75' total length, and 13'6" total height will not be permitted in evacuation traffic in either a voluntary or mandatory evacuation.

IF PARISH OR STATE OFFICIALS TELL YOU TO EVACUATE

  • Leave as soon as possible.

  • Make a Family Communication Plan.

  • Tell someone outside of the storm area where you are going.

  • Take emergency supplies, warm protective clothing, blankets/sleeping bags to shelter.

  • Protect your home by unplugging appliances and turning off electricity and water.

  • Turn off the main electrical power switch.

  • Turn off the main water valve and disconnect the hose.

  • Turn propane tanks off.

  • Lock-up your travel trailer or mobile home and leave.

DURING A HURRICANE OR TROPICAL STORM WATCH OR WARNING

  • Listen to radio/television for storm progress reports.

  • Check emergency supplies.

  • Fuel your car.

  • Board up windows and check tie-downs on your travel trailer or mobile home.

  • Turn refrigerator and freezer to coldest settings.

  • Store drinking water.

  • Review evacuation plan.

AFTER A STORM

  • Stay turned to local radio or television for information from you local or state officials.

  • Return home only after state or local officials advise that it is safe to do so.

Any individuals who lives in a travel trailer should pay close attention to radio and television reports to receive important information from local and state officials concerning hurricane precautions.
