Several of our national partners provide excellent training for individuals and organizations interested in learning more about the disaster cycle or becoming a skilled volunteer:

Organizations can become better connected and prepared for disasters by joining a local county or regional VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) or COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster).  VOADs and COADs improve outcomes for people and communities affected by disasters by facilitating partnerships and collaborations among the different organizations who seek to aid them.


If you are part of an organization that has, or would like to have, a presence and investment in disaster preparedness, response or recovery, click here to locate and connect with your local VOAD or COAD.
