Linn Area Partners Active in Disaster

Linn Area Partners Active in Disaster (LAP-AID) is a coalition of organizations who seek to increase resilience and minimize the impact of emergencies and disasters. More than 45 organizations and 13 teams contribute to LAP-AID. Each team brings a new perspective and skill to make the collaboration more effective.

UWECI provides leadership to several teams that make up LAP-AID including serving as officers and chairing various teams. 2-1-1 and our Volunteer Engagement team regularly participate in training and drills to make sure our community is prepared to respond in times of crisis.
