Welcome to DC RESPONDS, the online registry for medical and non-medical volunteers. DC RESPONDS is administered by the District of Columbia Department of Health, Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Administration.

DC RESPONDS integrates local, regional, and statewide volunteer programs to assist with emergency response and public safety organizations during a disaster. It is part of a national initiative to coordinate and mobilize volunteers to respond to all types of emergencies.

Volunteers of all skill levels and backgrounds are needed during an emergency response. Individuals are needed to assist in a wide variety of tasks that include data entry, transportation, shelter operations, or providing medical care. Whether you are a licensed and certified public health care provider, an administrative specialist, a retired professional, or an individual that has an interest in helping their community in a diasaster, we invite you to register in DC RESPONDS.
