New Orleans, Do You Have Your Blakeley Disaster Plan On You?

Stephen Sabludowsky, Publisher of BayoubuzzPeople of New Orleans, do you carry your personal plans with you?

After all, hurricanes have a way of just popping up at any time of the day or night almost as often as a crime gets committed on the streets of Katrina Alley.

Crime is so bad in New Orleans that citizens are armed to their teeth as they walk down Canal Street and St. Charles Avenue, so why shouldn’t we carry a disaster plan in case the next Big One arrives in town?

Plus, Governor Jindal has gone around south Louisiana urging everyone to “Get A Game Plan” just to make sure we’re not left soaking when the levees break again.

But, I surely don’t recall the governor suggest that we carry the plan around our persons as we  chase after beads during Mardi Gras season or even while we scream “Who Dat, Who Dat” at our friends, families and neighbors.

So, if you don’t have your disaster plan on your body or in your purse or wallet, then perhaps you do not fall in that population of people of which former New Orleans disaster Czar Professor Edward Blakeley was referring when he spoke to Heather Ewart on radio way down under for Australia Broadcasting Corporation last week.

During that radio interview, Blakeley was described as a leading disaster recovery expert who was asked to discuss the trauma that Christchurch's residents now face.

At the end of the interview, Blakeley said, “And finally, citizens should be prepared. Citizens are now looking for their loved ones. You have to have a personal plan. Where are you going to be in a disaster? In New Orleans and in California, people carry their personal plans with them every day.

So, do you carry your personal plans with you? After all, Professor Blakeley says “don’t leave home without it”.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
