Hello Hurricane Season! Evacuteer Community-Wide Training

Thousands of our neighbors may need help evacuating if a major storm comes our way. Evacuteers help us run the City of New Orleans free and public evacuation plan, City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE), to make sure that our residents are safe and out of harm's way!

In this session you will be introduced to the history of Evacuteer.org and why we were formed, how the City-Assisted Evacuation plan works, and the vital role that our volunteers play in ensuring that everyone who uses City-Assisted Evacuation is treated with respect and dignity.

Because the City’s evacuation plan is changing in 2019, we encourage all previously trained Evacuteers to attend this training as well. Food will be provided, but you must sign up in advance!

Bring a friend to help us reach our goal of 500 trained volunteers this year!

2019 City-Assisted Evacuation Exercise
May

8:00 AM08:00

2019 City-Assisted Evacuation Exercise

  • Central City Senior Center Evacuspot (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Volunteer to participate in this year's evacuation exercise!

Every year, we partner with the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (NOHSEP) and other local, state, and federal agencies to conduct an exercise 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 on to the central processing center downtown, and then over to the Louis Armstrong International Airport to simulate air evacuations. More details on event time/location coming soon!

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!

    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, we think you have what it takes 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 all throughout the year to help us conduct outreach and represent Evacuteer.org at various events in our 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 attended an introductory Evacuteer training session in the last two years before you are eligible to take leadership training. If you're not sure whether or not you are eligible to join our Teadership Team, please contact us! Click HERE to find an introductory training session near you.
