The Department of Health has established a phone number to locate displaced state employees.

 Employees of any state agency who are staying outside of their regular location because of Hurricane Katrina, as well as anyone who has any information on the whereabouts of a displaced state employee, are asked to call the hotline.

 The phone numbers are (225) 342-9345 or (225) 342-9340.

 Workers at the hotline are maintaining a database of employees for all state agencies and referring that information to the appropriate contact for each agency so the employees can be located and assisted with their needs.
