Disaster Service Worker Program for Public Employees

If you are a LA City employee, your day-to-day roles and responsibilities directly impact the lives of people who live, work, and play in the City of LA.

During an emergency or disaster, the City may ask you to do work outside the normal scope of your duties as a disaster service worker (DSW).

All public employees in the State of California are considered disaster service workers.

As a DSW you will never be asked to perform any duty or function you do not know how to perform or have not received adequate training to complete.

Learn more about your role as a DSW and how to prepare yourself and your family for a disaster using the other navigation panels in this LA CITY READINESS section.
