The purpose of the NYVOAD (NY Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster):
To bring together organizations active in disaster services to foster more effective preparedness, response and disaster recovery in New York State. Direct service to impacted communities is provided by the member agencies of the NYVOAD, not by the NYVOAD itself. NYVOAD is a coordinating agency whose goal is to enhance planning, training and communications between organizations active in disaster mitigation, response and recovery. Also to foster more effective service through preparation, response and mitigation for the benefit of all people in New York State imperiled or impacted by disasters.
This website was created to provide a common forum for NYVOAD member organizations, New York State and Federal partners. Please use the links at left to navigate the site. We hope your visit is enjoyable and invite your suggestions to make the website better.
