Mission Statement

Disaster City Volunteer Program is a non-profit organization of dedicated volunteers providing direct support that address specific needs of Texas Task Force One (TX-TF1) and the training and exercises conducted to prepare state, national and international first responders for response to natural and terrorist incidents.

Description

Since 2006, the TEEX Urban Search and Rescue (US&R) Division has utilized an incredible group of volunteers from the surrounding communities to assist with US&R training and large-scale exercises in Disaster City. The very difficult task of training for a large-scale disaster or terrorist attack requires that emergency responders are exposed to the chaos and disorganization of a disaster scene. Our volunteers help create that chaos and realism. They make training and exercises in Disaster City the most realistic in the world.
