Upper Valley Strong Presents at 2015 VT Emergency Preparedness Conference

Upper Valley Strong (UVS), in conjunction with Vermont 2-1-1, was invited to present “Why Vermont Needs COADs” at this year’s annual preparedness conference.  The presentation covered topics ranging from Response vs. Recovery, effective interaction between COADs and VOADs, and the current aligning of UVS and their regional planning commission (Two-Rivers Ottauquechee Regional Commission).

The presentation was well received.  Representatives from three regional planning commissions expressed interest in learning more about supporting the formation of COADs within their regions.
