The Mercer County Division of Mental Health serves as the point of contact for the Mercer County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD). Mercer County established the first local Community Organizations Active in Disaster network in New Jersey in the aftermath of the events of September 11, 2001. Mercer County's Community Organizations Active is Disaster is a network of public, private, faith-based, government, not-for-profit organizations, and businesses actively involved in disaster preparedness and response activities. Its goal is to provide a mechanism to encourage and support cooperation, communication, collaboration, and coordination in the preparedness, relief, recovery, and rebuilding response to disasters in Mercer County.
