NOLA Ready Evacuation Volunteer

Save to Favorites

NOLA Ready

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 4 people are interested

Join NOLA Ready & the New Orleans Health Department to help your neighbors safely evacuate this hurricane season.

An estimated 35,000 New Orleanians are unable to evacuate on their own ahead of a major storm. City-Assisted Evacuation provides transportation assistance as an option of last resort for these residents during a mandatory evacuation order.

As an essential part of the evacuation plan, volunteers assist first responders by providing additional staffing at the Smoothie King Center where evacuees are triaged and board buses bound for safe shelter out of the area, and at the 3-1-1 call center where evacuees can have their questions answered over the phone. Volunteers still evacuate , just after helping their neighbors beforehand.

NOLA Ready Evacuation Volunteers will be trained online, and may also be called upon for other public safety volunteer opportunities year-round. Volunteer leadership positions are also available for those who are interested. Neighbors helping neighbors is what makes New Orleans strong. Join us!
