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.
