CADRE Workday Overview
The intent of the 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 is envisioned as a half-day event to be held in late spring of 2017. All members of the CADRE network will be invited, as well as all county and city emergency managers in Santa Clara County. This event will focus on training, evaluating and testing of newly-developed coordination frameworks for the four functional areas named above.
- To help participants better understand how the function coordination teams assist government in the event of a disaster
- To assess and test the function coordination framework concepts, tools and procedures
- To identify errors, gaps and unresolved issues in function coordination frameworks
The workday will be comprised of the following components:
- Orientation to government operations and procedures, CADRE activation procedures, and the function coordination frameworks
- A working session within the function teams to assess their respective function coordination frameworks
- Tabletop exercise designed to test the function coordination frameworks
- An option for simultaneous sessions related to CADRE interests and needs
Tabletop Exercise Overview
