CARD is a nonprofit agency, based in Oakland California. We were created by local nonprofit agencies to address the preparedness and response needs of service providers — whose consumers are among the most vulnerable people in any community.
The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake demonstrated what is now familiar: that despite great effort and billions of dollars invested, traditional disaster response agencies simply cannot address all of the emergency preparedness, planning and response needs of our increasingly diverse society.
