Member Alert: Louisiana Lifts State of Emergency Call Restrictions

Effective Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 6 p.m. CDT, the conditions of Hurricane Delta allowed for the Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) to release its mandatory Emergency Operations Center (EOC) presence, and telephonic solicitations into the state can resume in compliance with the general provisions of the LPSC Do Not Call Program General Order, according to a notice on the LPSC website.

Should the LPSC subsequently be required to report to the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness in response to any state of emergency situation, a revised notice will be posted at that time.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards has declared a state of emergency due to Hurricane Delta through at least Nov. 4, 2020.

ACA encourages members to use their judgment and discretion when contacting consumers who may be impacted by the state of emergency and the storms and consult with their counsel for guidance if needed.

ACA also has tips for communicating with consumers during a natural disaster here.
