Bye Bye Hurricane Season!

  • Bayou St. John

The end of November is almost here, and we can all breathe a sigh a relief as we say "bye bye" to the 2016 hurricane season! And we don't have a shortage of reasons to celebrate: New Orleans has been spared from any major storms, our Evacuspot statues are all lit up, we've trained over 500 Evacuteers, and we're so lucky to be surrounded by awesome and amazing people like YOU- who are committed to keeping New Orleans safe! 

Our annual "Bye Bye Hurricane Season" party celebrates the accomplishments and contributions of our donors, volunteers, and community partners. There will be food, drinks, door prizes, music, dancing, lawn games, and so much more! 

Bring your family, friends, dogs, a picnic blanket and lawn chairs! We hope to see you there!

Evacuteer Leadership Training

Have you attended the introductory Evacuteer training, but you find that you're still thirsty for more? The goal of this day-long event is to train our outstanding volunteers who are interested in going the extra mile to manage logistics and supervise other Evacuteers during City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE). 

Evacuteer leaders are the backbone of the City-Assisted Evacuation. We rely on you not only during a mandatory evacuation, but also to help provide seasonal assistance and advocacy for our work as a year-round emergency preparedness-focused non-profit.

Agenda: We start off the morning with pure-information and team-building, followed by a catered lunch and trip to the Warren Easton Evacuspot. We set up our tent, tables, and role play as Evacuteers and evacuees, ensuring our ability to solve problems while registering people effectively. 

In true New Orleans fashion, we top it off with a happy hour to debrief. Questions? Email kali@evacuteer.org for more information. 

 

We hope to see you soon!

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!
