2019 City-Assisted Evacuation Exercise

  • Central City Senior Center Evacuspot 2101 Philip Street New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)

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!
