BATON ROUGE - State emergency response leaders got a lesson in teamwork Thursday.

Parish officials from across the state met in the capital city for the first annual parish leadership summit.

The seminar focused on how the state's leaders can work together during emergency disaster situations like hurricanes.

Guest speakers included Governor Bobby Jindal and the FEMA administrator.

The number of state shelters available was among the topics discussed.

The governor says his office is developing a plan to keep all evacuees in Louisiana during an emergency situation.
