Evacuteer training is offered from March-September each year, takes about one hour, and is usually held online via webinar or at a public library. During this introductory training session we will explain how City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) works, and discuss the important role that Evacuteers play during CAE. We know it's a big job, but we can do it with your help!
If you would like to set up a training session for your business, church, neighborhood association or community group, please contact us! firstname.lastname@example.org or call: (504) 517-3580
At training you will be asked to fill out a volunteer profile form, which enables us to reach you via phone and email in case we need you! You can preview this form by clicking the button below.
Additional Training Opportunities
After you have completed your first Evacuteer training, you are invited to attend the following training sessions to grow your leadership skills and expand your service role with us!
3-1-1 Specialist Training
One of Evacuteer.org's responsibilities includes supplementing City Hall staff with volunteers to help answer the 3-1-1 hotline when call volume is high; typically during tropical storms and low-level emergencies.
In 2017 we trained 84 Evacuteers to use the 3-1-1 answering system software, to help relieve call center staff while they work extended hours to serve our City and provide our residents with important information.
If you're unsure about your ability to serve a shift with us at an Evacuspot during a mandatory evacuation, 3-1-1 Specialist service may be a great opportunity for you to get involved with us!
All throughout the year, members of Evacuteer's Leadership Team really step up in supporting our work by coordinating Evacuteer training, attending periodic logistics and partner meetings, and taking additional training to develop and refine their leadership skills. Leadership training is an option for anyone who is up-to-date in their Evacuteeer training, and is willing to commit to serve a minimum of 2 years with us. Training takes around 6 hours, and is offered 2-3 times during hurricane season. Contact us to find out more!
