Oxygen Exchange Sites

The New Orleans Health Department, the New Orleans Fire Department, and the Louisiana Department of Health are working with residents who are power dependent for medical reasons. As part of this initiative, the City will be opening Oxygen Exchange sites across the city, where residents who are on oxygen can swap out an empty tank for a full tank, free of charge. The following locations will open Aug. 30 until and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

  • New Orleans Fire Station 1, 2920 Magazine St
  • New Orleans Fire Station 36, 5403 Read Blvd
  • New Orleans Fire Station 6, 4500 Old Gentilly Rd
  • New Orleans Fire Station 40, 2500 General de Gaulle Dr

If you need oxygen and cannot get to any of these sites, call the Special Needs Registry at 504-658-2558. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL ON THE ROADS AS HAZARDS AND DEBRIS ARE EVERYWHERE.
