Community Organizations Active In Disaster


The mission and purpose of the Greater Renton COAD, which includes neighborhoods, schools, businesses, government, faith communities, and non-profit organizations, is to identify, network, organized, and deploy resources to address the unmet human needs in disaster recovery.

Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD)

The Greater Renton COAD is comprised of 40+ businesses, non-profits, and faith based organizations in the Renton area. Our purpose is to provide resources to meet the unmet human needs of our community during a disaster. The COAD supports the community in food, clothing, mass care, donated goods, volunteer management, and emotional and spiritual support.

COAD’s Role in the Phases of Disaster


Encourages local organizations and businesses to be prepared through presentations and providing access to planning workshops and toolkits.


Keeps a presence in the City of Renton Emergency Operations Center and matches organizations with individual unmet needs.


After other response organizations leave, the COAD remains ready to help the community recover since it is made up of local non-profits, businesses, and other organizations.
