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.

Workday Objectives

  • Tabletop exercise designed to test the function coordination frameworks
  • An option for simultaneous sessions related to CADRE interests and needs
