CADRE (Collaborating Agencies' Disaster Relief Effort) is a leading network of organizations that provide community services that are essential in times of disaster.
CADRE coordinates organizational preparedness planning in non-disaster times and activates to respond and provide essential services during and after a disaster.
CADRE works closely with Santa Clara County's emergency management community to build disaster resilience among service organizations through communication, coordination and preparedness training.
CADRE is the official local Voluntary Agencies Active in Disaster (VOAD) for Santa Clara County under Northern California's State VOAD. Read More >
