Welcome to D.A.R.T.



The Thousand Oaks Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) is a well-organized group of trained, local citizen volunteers. Members volunteer their time and energy in being prepared to assist local government and public safety agencies in serving the Conejo Valley and Ventura County.

DART receives funding from the City of Thousand Oaks and the generous donations from the Thousand Oaks Police Charitible Foundation. Administered by the Thousand Oaks Police Department, DART is called upon by the Police, Sheriff, and Fire Departments to assist in both emergency and non-emergency situations.

You are invited to participate in DART meetings. The General Meeting is open to the public, and is conducted on the fourth Thursday of every month at 7:00PM  in the Community Room at the Thousand Oaks Police Department, East County Sheriff’s Station.
