Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD)
On October 3, Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) had our semi annual meeting. We discussed the recent fires in the neighboring cities, what we learned about unmet needs, what was working and what didn’t. By sharing this information we know what we need to put in place and what local resources we have when a disaster hits our community. We went over the importance of regionalizing VOAD. We will be focusing on pulling in agencies from the out-skirting areas to participate in VOAD so we have a more cohesive and expansive team in every part of Humboldt. We will continue to do training’s, relevant presentations and on going expansion. We will continue our work to make sure our community is as prepared for a disaster as we can be.
