SIREN SYSTEM


CCOAD Philosophy

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for CCOAD-Logo.gifWe are an umbrella organization of existing organizations that focus on their own business objectives during non-disaster periods. During a crisis, we come together to address community and regional response and recovery needs in a non-competitive atmosphere.  We advise, coordinate and assist as partners when asked to do so by emergency authorities for the good of the community.

Each participating organization maintains its own identity and independence when partnering with other members.

Our leadership is comprised of non-paid, CCOAD elected leaders as required by our member authorized by-laws. We are guided by policies and procedures that are based on national US Citizen Corps, Georgia Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters and emergency management agency philosophies and guidelines.
