Verbo of Louisiana: Ayudar la ciudad de Houston

Amada familia;

Nuestro corazón está con nuestros hermanos y con la población en general de la ciudad de Houston y otras ciudades que han sido inundadas por las lluvias del huracán Harvey, hay perdidas de vidas, muchas  casas inundadas con perdida general de todo. Recordando lo que vivimos en New Orleans 12 años atrás con el huracán Katrina y quienes fueron los que dieron la mano, dándonos sus casas y permitiéndonos vivir en esa ciudad por un largo tiempo, pedimos sus oraciones para que nuestro Dios y Señor extienda misericordia en esta catástrofe natural, ponga en nuestros corazones el ayudar con ropa en general, alimentos preferiblemente en lata, juguetes, material educativo para niños y otros que ustedes crean sean útiles en este momento.

Nos unimos con la nueva emisora radial en la ciudad de Kenner “La calle 97.9 FM”, con otras iglesias y negocios en general que quieren apoyar esta causa y desde el día de ayer hay un trailer que se esta llenando con todo lo que la gente trae para ser llevado lo antes posible a Houston. Favor lleve sus donaciones a este lugar 2002 20th. Street Suite B-203 Kenner, LA 70062

             Nuestra de solidaridad ayudara a mitigar un poco el dolor y que así como New Orleans se ha levantado con ayuda y solidaridad del pueblo americano, la ciudad de Houston se levantará con la ayuda de Dios y con nuestra colaboración.

Dios les bendiga grandemente,

City- Assisted Evacuation Drill

Hurricane season is approaching… join us for this year’s City-Assisted Evacuation drill!


We’re neighbors helping neighbors- we can all get out safely with the power of us!


Evacuteer.org is a nonprofit organization based in New Orleans that recruits and trains volunteers to provide hurricane preparedness and City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) information to the community. Our Evacuation Volunteers (“Evacuteers”) also help facilitate the CAE in the case of a mandatory evacuation.


Every year, we work with the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (NOHSEP) and other partner agencies to conduct a drill of the City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE) plan. This year we’re all very excited to partner with the University of New Orleans Center for Hazards Assessment, Response and Technology (UNO-CHART) to simulate New Orleans’ first full-scale exercise of CAE- and we need YOU! We are working to recruit hundreds of volunteers to participate in this exercise, role-playing as both Evacuteers and evacuees. The more volunteers we have, the better able we are to test these systems in advance of a real-life activation!


This is a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge of City-Assisted Evacuation, or to simply better understand it through first-hand experience! Lunch will be provided- please submit a Google Form response through the following link if you’d like to volunteer! https://goo.gl/forms/zLc0MgNQNdj68xmX2
