Structure & Leadership
The Community Overdose Action Team (COAT) is co-led by Public Health – Dayton & Montgomery County and Montgomery County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services.
The COAT operates under the Incident Command System (ICS) structure. ICS provides a comprehensive management system designed to enable community partners to work together to respond to local, state and federal emergencies. The structure includes a Steering Committee, Backbone Support, Data Unit, Joint Information Center (JIC), and eight operations branches focusing on the following areas related to drug overdose prevention: treatment and recovery, drug supply control, response, harm reduction, prescription, education and information, criminal justice, and prevention. Co-chairs of the operations branches are subject matter experts in the areas of focus.
COAT has over 200 members representing all sectors within our community including government, healthcare, faith-based, civic/volunteer organizations, law enforcement, fire/EMS, youth-serving organizations, schools, media, substance abuse organizations, concerned citizens, those in recovery, and families/friends of those in recovery.
