Serve DC knows firsthand that volunteer engagement and response is critical in the event of an emergency, and its Neighborhood Corps initiative ensures residents have the skills and resources necessary to serve their communities in times of crisis.
Neighborhood Corps engages residents with free emergency preparedness training opportunities and brings together emergency-trained volunteers who live, work and/or congregate in the same District communities and are capable of responding in the event of an emergency. Trainings are led by emergency-management professionals and first responders and offerings may include topics such as CPR/AED, First Aid, Remote/Wilderness First Aid, Flood Mitigation and Sandbag Operations, Traffic and Crowd Management, Spontaneous Volunteer Management, and more.
Request Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) or other emergency preparedness training for your organization, school, workplace or house of worship.
