Emergency Service Volunteers
EMERGENCY SERVICE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
The Emergency Service Volunteer (ESV) Program is an official program sponsored by the City of Palo Alto. It was started in 2008.
Before any disasters, ESVs help residents prepare for emergencies and are part of the City’s Neighborhood Watch. During a disaster, when there are not enough First Responders to help everyone, we step in to help our neighbors and organize our response as a community.
There are five main groups of volunteers in the Emergency Services Volunteers Program:
For more details about each of these groups, please watch Palo Alto’s Introduction to the Emergency Services Volunteers Program and check the links to the right. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
