Group Meets in Lynchburg to Talk About Disaster Response

Lynchburg, VA - A group that helps in times of disaster met in Lynchburg Thursday morning.

The group is called Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster. They are a group of voluntary and non-governmental agencies that collaborate in times of natural or man-made emergencies. It allows area groups to come together to figure out what to do during a disaster.

"It just works really really well, It just makes sure we don't bump heads and do the same job that somebody else is trying to do," said Rick Green, Chairman of the South Central VA VOAD.

Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster was formed in order to enhance and support the response of non-governmental agencies during an event within the Commonwealth of Virginia.
