Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters

Volunteers are the backbone of any community, and when it comes to emergencies and disasters, it's the volunteers that put the community back together.

Organizations that specialize in Community Preparedness, Disaster Response and Recovery have formed a national coalition to work together.  Many of the organizations which make up the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) have local organizations which help us prepare and respond.

Two major VOAD organizations in our county are the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
