A VOAD or Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster is the forum where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle—preparation, response and recovery—to help disaster survivors and their communities. We know that much of this work is already been done in Laramie but Red Cross would like to help streamline this process and ensure that when a disaster affects a local community, that the VOAD can be quickly engaged and those impacted can received the most comprehensive services available.
