our help can best be utilized.

We work with local and regional disaster response teams to effectively assist established governmental agencies

wherever possible.

Many of our members are CERT credentialed and active within the community CERT program.

The militia is classified as a civilian volunteer organization and therefore will carry out operations in absence

of orders as dictated by necessity during a crisis. All Cajun Guard personnel will conduct themselves with

professionalism, integrity and the utmost respect for others at all times.

It is our assertion that Cajun Guard constitutes and fulfills the role of the Unorganized Militia for the State of

Louisiana as defined by Louisiana state law.
