Thousands of our neighbors may need help evacuating if a major storm comes our way. Evacuation volunteers (Evacuteers) assist with New Orleans’ public evacuation option, called City-Assisted Evacuation (or CAE for short), to make sure that our residents are safe and out of harm's way!

We're neighbors helping neighbors- in the event of a mandatory evacuation in the City of New Orleans, Evacuteers serve to ensure that:

  • Families stay together,
  • Pets are evacuated with their people,
  • Everyone gets out to safe shelter, and
  • Everyone has the opportunity to come back home!

In this 1-hour training session you will be introduced to the history of Evacuteer.org and what we do, learn how CAE works, and the vital role that our volunteers play in ensuring that everyone who uses CAE is treated with respect and dignity.

Come out to the beautifully renovated Rosa F. Keller library in Broadmoor to find out what we're all about, and what YOU can do to help!

City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) Exercise

8:00 AM08:00

City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) Exercise

Volunteer to participate in this year's CAE exercise! The more people we have, the better able we are to test how well everything works prior to a real-life evacuation. We saw an incredibly busy Atlantic hurricane season last year, so we can't stress enough how important it is to be prepared and have a plan!

Every year, we partner with the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (NOHSEP) and other agencies to conduct a drill of the City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) plan. This is a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge of CAE, or simply better understand it through first-hand experience!

We're recruiting volunteers who will role-play as both evacuees and Evacuteers while we run through the CAE process, from the Evacuspot at the Central City Senior Center, on to the Greyhound station (Union Passenger Terminal) downtown, and then to the Louis Armstrong International Airport to simulate air evacuations. Everyone will then receive a ride back to the Central City Senior Center where we will debrief and take lunch!

You do not have to be a trained Evacuteer to participate- all are welcome to join us! You can sign up for an Evacuteer training session on site if you'd like to get more involved in the work we do to ensure the preparedness and safety of our residents throughout hurricane season!

Lunch will be provided for all who participate!

    • Is detail-oriented, community service-minded, and flexible?

    • 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!

    Evacuteer Introductory Webinar Training

    We expect that at least 35,000 New Orleans residents will need to use the City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) because they do not have the resources available to evacuate themselves and their families. Evacuation volunteers (aka Evacuteers) are the people who make sure that we all get out safely!

     Topics discussed in this training include:

    • How and why Evacuteer.org was formed
    • How City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) works
    • Evacuteer service roles during both evacuation and re-entry
    • An introduction to Evacuteer leadership and specialist roles

    Evacuteer Leadership Training
    Aug
    6
    9:00 AM09:00

    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. 

    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.

    NOAA SLOSH Modeling Webinar
    Jul
    28
    12:00 PM12:00

    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!
