Enchanted Circle COAD (EC COAD)
The Enchanted Circle’s public and private sector organizations have joined forces to form the Enchanted Circle Community Organizations Active in Disaster. The EC COAD is made up of various private sector and non-governmental agencies, businesses, non-profits, faith-based groups and community leaders to foster effective preparedness, response and recovery for the people of the Enchanted Circle as needed.
This website is meant to identify the unmet needs in the community and provide assistance to address those needs. It is sponsored by the EC COAD.
The EC COAD focuses support for our community by using:
Cooperation: creating a climate of cooperation at all levels of and in all phases of disaster, including information sharing and meeting.
Coordination: encouraging shared situational awareness, providing a liaison with town/country government officials, encouraging effective management and distribution of resources to address the unmet needs of community members.
Communications: publishing and disseminating evidence-based, verified information both for the benefit of member organizations and the public.
Collaboration: working together to achieve actionable goals and to undertake specific projects at disaster sites and form partnerships during the disaster response.
