Disaster (VOAD), a national forum “where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle” — preparation, disaster relief/response, recovery and mitigation — to support community readiness and navigation of disasters. The National VOAD coalition includes 50 of America’s most reputable organizations, 55 state/territory VOADS representing local and regional interests, and other members. PWNA is a first responder for the reservations, often acting in concert with the American Red Cross and other state or national VOAD members.
