Emergency Preparedness

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.

Empowering Residents to be Prepared for Emergencies and Disasters

Serve DC empowers people who live, work, and congregate in the District with the skills and information necessary to prepare for disasters and emergencies. It is important for everyone to have an emergency preparedness kit. Do you have enough supplies to last for at least 72 hours? Download a recommended emergency supplies list HERE.
