The Amite Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Tangipahoa Parish OHSEP for being selected as February's Branch Award winner. It is businesses like Tangipahoa Parish OHSEP that have helped shape and prosper our flourishing community. Tangipahoa Parish OHSEP started over 30 years ago as the Office of Civil Defense then transitioned to the Office of Emergency Preparedness in the 80's. After 9/11/2001, the department became its current designation as the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, where its function is to coordinate resources to manage large scale emergencies that require multiple agency response. The Tangipahoa Parish OHSEP serve as the liaison to the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and FEMA for resources outside of our parish's normal availability. Tangipahoa Parish OHSEP office just completed construction of the new 14000 sf Emergency Operations Center here in Amite that is a state of the art building capable of withstanding 200 mph winds and debris.  A WORD FROM THE WINNER... Our office, in coordination with our Emergency Support Function personnel from the various disciplines, coordinated the water rescues of just under 4000 citizens during the 2 floods of 2016. Opened 7 shelters and housed over 1800 residents.
