DART’s goal is to have knowledgeable members trained in earthquake preparedness, basic disaster psychology, basic first aid, CPR for the Professional Rescuer, AED, urban search and rescue (USAR), fire suppression techniques, hazardous material awareness, emergency radio communications, traffic control techniques and safety assessment.
We need your help! DART provides FREE professional training for new members in all these vital functions. Volunteers in other areas, including clerical help, publicity, and community awareness are also necessary to sustain this crucial program.
You are invited to participate in the Thousand Oaks Disaster Assistance Response Team.
The General Meeting is open to the public, and is conducted on the fourth Thursday of every month at 7:00PM.
Meetings generally last about 2 hours, and are usually held in the Community Room at the Thousand Oaks Police Department, East County Sheriff’s Station. This is where training, community education and involvement, and other subjects are discussed.
If you can volunteer your time, and you are over 18 years of age, please consider joining the team via the form below.
