BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Emergency operations directors from across Louisiana are meeting in Baton Rouge on Thursday to discuss new ways to keep the people safe.

The two-day conference is taking place at the Crowne Plaza. One official said he appreciates the networking opportunity the annual event provides.

"Gives us a great opportunity to network with 64 parish directors throughout the state and some of their assistants and other departments within the state to get information and to find out what's going on throughout the state," said Earl Eues, director of Terrebonne Parish Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

Officials plan to address everything from Ebola concerns to hurricane preparedness.
