Training and Mobilizing Volunteers to Create Safer Communities
As the District lead for emergency volunteer and donations management, Serve DC provides critical support to the city’s official emergency response effort in the first 72 hours of a crisis. Serve DC recruits and trains District residents to respond and assist during emergencies – ensuring residents play a major role in making their communities safer, stronger and better prepared to address threats of terrorism, crime and disasters.
