CADRE offers a number of programs and events each year to assist member agencies with their emergency preparedness and planning efforts.

Planning Assistance

CADRE is pleased to announce that FREE planning assistance is now available to a limited number of CADRE member organizations - Community-based Organizations (CBOs) and Faith-based Organizations (FBOs). This program is designed to help CBOs and FBOs with their own organization's emergency planning and disaster preparedness efforts.  Agencies selected will be contacted by CADRE staff to assess:
  • Where your agency currently stands with disaster and emergency planning for your organization
  • What help or assistance is needed or desired
  • Who is available from your agency to work with CADRE staff and your local City emergency manager

CADRE Community Collaborative Workday

A brand new initiative for 2017, the intent of the Community Workday is to strengthen CADRE response in a disaster, particularly within four functional areas:
  • Access and Functional Needs (AFN)
  • Food Sourcing and Distribution
  • Donations Management
  • Case Management
The workday will be a half-day event held on May 10, 2017 at American Red Cross in San Jose. Registration is scheduled to open March 1st and all members of the CADRE network will be invited, as will all county and city emergency managers in Santa Clara County. The event will focus on training, evaluating, and testing of newly-developed service coordination frameworks being developed in the areas of access and functional needs, food sourcing and distribution, case management, and donations management.
