We're proud to turn our final Charity Spotlight on Evacuteer.org, a 501c3 based out of New Orleans.
Evacuteer.org was born out of lessons learned during the implementation of New Orleans' first City Assisted Evacution Plan (CAEP) during Hurricane Gustav in 2008. The CAEP is a public option created for New Orleans' residents without the means to independently leave the city in the case of a mandatory evacuation. By training and mobilizing citizen-volunteers (evacuteers) to respectfully assist their fellow citizens in safe departure and re-entry in the event of a mandatory evacuation, evacuteer.org demonstrates its commitment to working with the community and its residents until New Orleans becomes a role model for emergency preparedness on a global scale. Long term projections for evacuteer include a nationwide proof of concept in New Orleans to export to other American cities. The organization also develops academic, peer reviewed emergency preparedness campaigns and its current flagship initiative is working with the City of New Orleans to commission public art to double as hurricane evacuation pick up point markers.
