What Is A COAD?

COAD is a local extension of the statewide Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD). It is an umbrella organization that exists to bring together those who are interested in building a better prepared and more resilient Hamilton County community.

·         Enhance our community’s ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters

·         Improving our community's resources by creating local relationships prior to an event

·         Ensure human needs probable in a disaster are assessed and met

·         Strengthening area-wide disaster coordination

·         Sharing program, policies, and information

·         Implementing joint planning and training

COADs provide a network through which individual organizations can more effectively address their mission and service goals during all four phases of a disaster. Members maintain autonomy while working to reduce duplication of services and other inefficiencies that occur during times of disaster.

A COAD enhances the ability for all communities involved to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. COAD members believe that community leadership, public and private, should be utilized in planning, directing and implementing the disaster recovery. COADs work closely with but are not governed by, the local EMA office.
