Evacuteer Leadership Training

Are you a trained Evacuteer who:

  • Wakes up in the morning and runs through the day ahead of you, play by play, because you love processes like that?
  • Is detail-oriented, community service-minded, and flexible?
  • Constantly hears your friends and family comment on your awesome and amazing communication skills?
  • Wants to challenge yourself in a leadership role, so that you can be a resource of knowledge within your community?

If you answered "Yes" to at least one of the above questions, you may be ready to become an Evacuteer Leader!

Our leadership team is truly the backbone of City-Assisted Evacuation. We rely on our leaders not only during a mandatory evacuation, but also throughout the year to help us conduct outreach and represent Evacuteer.org at various events in the community. We are the only New Orleans-based non-profit that advocates for hurricane preparedness year-round, and we're looking for bright, outgoing leaders like you to join our cause!

During this leadership training session we will go into greater detail to explain logistics management during City-Assisted Evacuation, problem solving, and the in's and out's of supervising other Evacuteers. We will also role-play through some scenarios to get you thinking critically about difficult situations that may arise in the event of an Evacuteer activation. Lunch and refreshments will be provided!

Prerequisite: You must have already attended an introductory training prior to coming to this leadership training session! Click the following link to find an introductory training near you: Evacuteer Training Calendar

NOAA SLOSH Modeling Webinar

NOAA SLOSH Modeling Webinar

The Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model is a computerized numerical model developed by the National Weather Service (NWS) to estimate storm surge heights resulting from historical, hypothetical, or predicted hurricanes by taking into account the atmospheric pressure, size, forward speed, and track data. Recent science suggests that SLOSH modeling may be more reliable than wind speed in determining whether or not a mandatory evacuation will be called during a hurricane. 

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) staff have offered to provide us with a training session to share their wealth of knowledge on the science behind storm surge, so that we can better communicate this threat to our service population and volunteers!
