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 >
Each year CADRE seeks to honor a non-profit organization that has shown innovative efforts and leadership related to emergency preparedness planning. We are seeking those organizations who have led the way in preparing themselves and/or other agencies to successfully plan for or recover from a disaster. The CADRE Leadership Committee will review nominations and select one organization whose efforts stand out as inspirational and exemplary. The organization could be large or small, religious or secular, and does not have to be a member of CADRE. .
The Award will be presented at the 10th Annual CADRE ‘Together We Do Better’ Conference on September 16th at the NASA Ames Conference Center (NACC) at Moffett Field in Mountainview. This conference brings together Santa Clara County non-profit and government agencies to share and improve emergency preparedness and coordination efforts and attracts a full house of nearly 300 participants each year. .

~Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:15 a.m. on October 15th* during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills, which began in California in 2008. Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes– wherever you live, work, or travel. * You can hold your ShakeOut drill any day in October if 10/15 does not work
