NEW ORLEANS, LA — The New Orleans Health Department collaborates with NOLA Ready to host a training on how to respond to domestic violence or DV incidents in sheltering and evacuation situations, as well as other emergencies where DV may be present.

This training provides information on the dynamics of domestic violence before and during a disaster. Participants will have a better understanding of:

  • The impact of DV and DV dynamics
  • The connection between DV and disaster
  • Typical reactions to trauma
  • How to Recognize DV Signs
  • Techniques for assisting survivors in crises, as well as basic safety planning
  • How to refer survivors to available local resources

Jocelyn Pinkerton, LCSW, and Hope Levins, LMSW from the New Orleans Health Department, will lead this webinar.

The training takes place via zoom on July 8, 2021, at 6 PM CT. To receive the webinar link, visit

NOLA Ready is the emergency preparedness campaign managed by the Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness for the City of New Orleans.

NOLA Ready provides the opportunity for volunteers with a range of skills by inviting individuals to participate in the NOLA Ready Volunteer Corps. NOLA Ready Corps volunteers aid in the development of a culture of preparedness and resilience by assisting first responders, community partners, and residents with disaster response and recovery efforts. Volunteers with NOLA Ready Corps are part of a team that works to meet the needs of residents before, during and after disasters.

Volunteer opportunities are not regularly scheduled as NOLA Ready volunteering is based on emergencies and disasters. They will contact you as soon as volunteer opportunities become available.
