Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD)

Colorado South Central Region Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (CO SCR VOAD) is organized in support of Pikes Peak Regional OEM and other emergency management agencies in neighboring counties. It is the Colorado South Central Region chapter of National Voluntary Agencies Active in Disasters (NVOAD). It consists of organizations active in disaster response throughout five counties in Colorado: El Paso, Teller, Chaffee, Park, and Lake County. The role of CO SCR VOAD is to bring organizations together, enable them to understand each other and work together in a cohesive manner when disaster strikes. SCR VOAD itself is not a provider of disaster and recovery services. CO SCR VOAD has meetings with our member organizations four times each year to share information and training opportunities. These meetings also provide the opportunity to conduct business, plan, network, and provide updates on current disaster relief efforts.

If you would like for your organization or non-profit group to become a member of CO SCR VOAD, please submit a free membership application.

  • Voluntary organizations and faith-based groups engaged in disaster response
  • Government emergency management at all levels
  • Private sector partners that want to assist communities affected by disasters
