Hello New Orleans,

We're reaching out to invite you to participate in the City's hurricane evacuation exercise on Friday, April 30th.

While we have no intention of slowing down COVID-19 vaccine efforts, we also look ahead to the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, which begins in June. As we experienced with last year's record-breaking hurricane season, other emergencies do not stop, even during a global pandemic. We're planning ahead to ensure that we are prepared for any storms that may come our way this summer & fall.

Next week, we're hosting a small scale dry run, or “functional exercise” of a mandatory hurricane evacuation, to test our City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) plan, and we are seeking volunteers for this effort. City-Assisted Evacuation is a large-scale life-saving emergency operation designed to help our most vulnerable neighbors evacuate to a safe shelter ahead of a major hurricane, so that no one is left behind. Join us:

Date: Friday, April 30th

Time: 8am-2pm

Food: Lunch will be provided

Needed: 100 volunteers

  • Volunteer Role A: Roleplay as a volunteer supporting City-Assisted Evacuation.
  • Volunteer Role B: Roleplay as a CAE user, to help test hurricane response plans.
