Elkhart County COAD Mission & Values

The mission of the Elkhart County COAD is to unify community organizations in disaster mitigation, prevention, preparation, response, and recovery.


Cooperation:              We provide a consortium for organizations to work together in times of crisis by sharing                                                    programs, policies, information, joint planning and training.

Communication:    We publish and disseminate information and resources that share our capabilities, and                                                    help to educate our community on disaster relief messages.

Coordination:            We commit to working together toward offering effective services to disaster victims. We                                                 seek to match services to needs and deliver services in an integrated manner.

Collaboration:          We form partnerships to enhance disaster response efforts and mitigation.
