Hurricane Season Evacuation Volunteer Update: Train Up with NOLA Ready

posted May 26, 2020, 9:23 AM by Algiers Neighborhood Presidents Council   [ updated May 26, 2020, 9:28 AM ]


June 2020

Hurricane season is almost here, and it's time to train up and volunteer! 

Hurricane season will be unique this year, as we navigate it alongside the threat of COVID19. Nola Ready is looking for dedicated volunteers to step up to the challenge of keeping our City safe and supporting our most vulnerable residents in the event of a major storm. This year, we have some important changes to announce to our volunteer program and trainings!

Due to the public health considerations from COVID19, the City Assisted Evacuation (CAE) volunteer program will now be managed by NOLA Ready and the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), instead of Evacuteer.

As we kick off the 2020 Hurricane Season, we will be recruiting and training a large volunteer force to assist First Responders in the event of a City Assisted Evacuation during COVID19. NOLA Ready Evacuation Volunteers will be trained online, will undergo a background check, and will also have the opportunity to volunteer year round for other public safety opportunities. Due to COVID-19, all staff, volunteers, and evacuees will be provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will be required to socially distance if a mandatory evacuation is necessary. 

Our kick off Hurricane Season Nola Ready Evacuation Volunteer Online Training will take place Thursday June 4th at 6pm. All interested volunteers should register for the training by clicking here. 

Volunteers who were formerly trained and registered as Evacuteers are absolutely encouraged to train again this season with NOLA Ready and the NOMRC if they want to continue to volunteer with City-Assisted Evacuation. If you were an Evacuspot leader and would like to continue your evacuspot duties, please email

Finally, please take a minute to complete our annual Hurricane Season Survey. We are identifying which of our volunteers will be available over the summer months to assist in COVID-19 and hurricane season preparedness and response efforts. Please complete this survey by Sunday, June 7th. 

As we’ve seen over and over again, neighbors helping neighbors is what makes New Orleans strong. There will be many opportunities to train up and step up this season with NOLA Ready. Please stay tuned for upcoming trainings and volunteer call-outs. 

Stay safe & stay healthy!
