Welcome to Westwego, Louisiana!
Westwego is a small city that is located on the West Bank of the Mississippi River in the heart of Jefferson Parish. With its stable population and slow, sustainable growth within its roughly one square mile footprint, Westwego represents, in many ways, a model community, steeped in historic roots of South Louisiana and coastal waters, a culturally diverse hard-working community of independent stature. Westwego, with its historic Sala Avenue, Shrimp Lot, and Bayou Segnette State Park, is a great place to visit and is located just 15 minutes from downtown New Orleans.

Hurricane Season is here.
Now is the time to plan for a storm event. Sign up for JP Alert to get up to the minute information about the storm and evacuations.
JPAlert is an alert notification system that allows officials to immediately contact you during a major crisis or emergency and can deliver important emergency alerts, notifications and updates to you on all your devices:
- email account (work, home, other)
- cell phone
- smartphone and other handheld devices
Here are examples of when JPAlert may be used:
- Life-threatening weather
- Highly disruptive road shutdowns
- Evacuation or Shelter in Place information
- Boil water notices
- Information about emergency shelters
- Other emergency information
JPAlert is your connection to real-time updates with the Parish of Jefferson. JPAlert will give you instructions on where to go, what to do, or what not to do, and who to contact during an emergency. Other important information can also be passed on to you through this notification system. JPAlert is a free service; however, your wireless carrier may charge you a fee to receive messages on your device.
