Rob Gaudet, founder of Cajun Navy, hosts a TV show about Climate Change


“I was able focus on lots of things.” LouisianaThe August 2016 Baton Rouge flooding,” says Gaudet. “I organized more that 30,000 citizen rescue missions in a span of 10 days using the incredible, tech-savvy, media-savvy team at Cajun Navy Ground Force.”

Gaudet was both the founder and director of the first Cajun Navy. His thoughtful approach to citizen rescues helped save thousands. The Cajun Navy Ground Force was there to help when crisis support systems were overwhelmed. They also donated their resources and good citizens. Gaudet believes that people are naturally motivated to help their neighbors in times of crisis, but they need a way to do so.

“My method was simple: we would engage volunteers through the use of social media, and we would agree that we would work alongside local authorities. This separated our efforts and those of citizen boaters, who were frustrated at being turned down by authorities. Gaudet says that authorities welcomed our volunteers by setting up communication systems and following established guidelines.” 

Cajun Navy Ground Force has grown its volunteer base over the past five years and is now a nationally recognized and trusted 501c3 non-profit that organizes citizens to provide emergency assistance to communities in need. The team uses social media, progressive technology and the Internet to inform the public as well as to encourage volunteer participation in the aftermath disasters. They have created SAFE Camp, which is a central place to collaborate with other organizations, as well as to streamline clean up and distribute supplies.

Since 2016, the Cajun Navy Ground Force has been involved in multiple disasters, including Hurricanes Harvey (2017) and Irma (2018), Florence (2018), Michael (2018), and Laura (2020). They also assisted with Tropical Storm Imelda, Dayton tornadoes and flooding in SD and NE in 2019; and Hurricanes Delta and Laura 2020; and Hurricane Ida and ice storms at LA and TX 2021. Mayfield, KY.  

“Cajun Navy Ground Force is now a media organization that uses technology for awareness and fundraising that drives funds and volunteers to disaster response. Each experience allows us to grow and improve our efficiency. Gaudet says that our team currently uses 360 Virtual Reality video and plans to use NFTs in the future to make their efforts even more efficient.”
