The mission of Lane County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) is to bring together a broad array of community organizations to foster an effective response to the people of Lane County in times of disaster.
The COAD’s working relationships are achieved through the promotion of cooperation, communication, coordination, and collaboration of member organizations.
Cooperation: No member organization has all of the answers for the challenges communities face. Members treat each other as partners.
Communication: Members regularly share their capacities, accomplishments, and commitments. The COAD maintains good channels for sharing information, listening carefully to each other, and dealing openly with concerns.
Coordination: COAD members work together towards the goal of effective service to the community. The COAD will equip members to be coordinated in times of disaster through planning and preparation.
Collaboration: COAD members dedicate themselves to working together.Function
The COAD exists to coordinate member organizations’ activities in relation to emergency response. It is a support to County and City emergency managers but is not run by emergency management personnel. Through regular meetings, communication, planning, and training together, member agencies will be well connected, organized, and ready to respond. On an ongoing basis, the COAD helps with sharing information, resources, and expertise. The COAD will know what resources COAD members have to potentially offer and the contact person to access them.
