CADRE

CADRE is a network of non-profit and faith based organizations that have specific disaster roles or that want to learn more about the impacts of disasters and how to assist when needs arise.  CADRE works closely with Santa Clara County's emergency management community to strengthen disaster preparedness, response and relief efforts.

 

CADRE is the local affiliate for Northern California's Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) and serves as the coordinating entity for Santa Clara County to connect with both the statewide and National VOAD network.

 

Disaster preparedness is an important focus of CADRE.  Grant funded workshops on relevant topics are presented on a regular basis at no cost to participants.  CADRE also supports individual organization preparedness.
