What is the Emergency Notification System (ENS)?
The Beau Chene Homeowners Association (BCHOA) has contracted with a third party to provide an Emergency Notification System (ENS). The ENS will be utilized by the BCHOA, pursuant to an established protocol, when situations require notification to the homeowners and residents through means not sufficiently met by currently available social media postings or email notifications.
The ENS will be used to alert residents to situations that might arise for which immediate notice is a best practice. These situations will be outlined in a protocol for the ENS, but will include, but not be limited to:
- Safety concerns involving ongoing police presence in the neighborhood;
- Safety concerns involving any compromise to the BCHOA water system;
- Any safety concerns reported to the BCHOA concerning lost children;
- Any street outages or interruption in BCHOA services due to flooding;
- Any ordered mandatory evacuations by state or local authorities; and
- Any other situation that, as per the established protocol, requires notification to the homeowners and residents.

Also, information may be obtained by contacting the BCHOA administration at the main office at (985) 231-6285 or email at email@example.com.
