Service Members and their families are strong and face many adventures throughout their military career. Military life can also be stressful at times and some may start to feel isolated, overwhelmed, or angry when dealing with challenging situations. These reactions can be common responses to life events. However, these feelings may be signs of more serious conditions. People coping with challenges may feel like there is no escape from their symptoms, leading them to have thoughts of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) – press ‘1’ for the Military Crisis Line or send a text to 838255. You can also visit http://www.militarycrisisline.net.
If you or someone you know is talking about suicide get them assistance immediately with these three steps – Ask, Care, Escort. Ask your loved one if they are thinking of killing themselves. Care for your loved one – actively listen to show understanding, remove any means that could be used for self-injury. Escort your loved one – never leave them alone! Escort them to their chain of command, a chaplain, a behavioral health professional, or primary care provider.
In the event of bad weather which may include high winds and rain, the following will aid in lessening damage to the property.
- On high wind advisory days, please lock storm doors so that wind cannot damage the door.
- Check around home for objects that may be lifted by high winds and could damage your home or nearby homes (grills, chairs, trash cans, recycle bins, etc.)
In the event, of shingles lifting off roof and causing roof leaks, during business hours please call your Neighborhood Center.
After business hours, contact (337)-537-5050 and Answering Service will take the call and forward information to an Emergency Call Technician.
Please allow time for the technician to come to your home.
The Emergency Call (Ecall) Technician will assess the situation and complete a repair if possible. If immediate repair is not an option, the Ecall will provide instructions on how to prevent damage until a complete repair may be completed.
- As in previous bad weather events, the Maintenance department will conduct an initial assessment, secure the property from further damage and then come back in the following days to complete repair.
- Thank you for taking the time to make sure your home is extreme weather ready and don’t forget to check on your neighbors!!
