City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE)
CAE is the free and public evacuation option available in Orleans Parish, developed by the Office of Homeland Security and New Orleans Fire Department following Hurricane Katrina. Anyone who is unable to leave during a mandatory evacuation may use CAE to get a free ride to a safe shelter. CAE also provides for a ride home once the city is re-opened.

The New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness launched the NOLA Ready campaign to help promote public awareness for disasters and emergencies. Visit the NOLA Ready website to learn about CAE, hurricane preparedness and other seasonal risks, subscribe to the city's email and text alerts, request a training, and more!
