Disaster Survivors Advocacy Team (DSAT) offers a unique community-wide coordinated response to aiding people impacted by disasters. Part of Citizen Corps of Pierce County, DSAT is comprised of nonprofit, faith-based, private sector, and government agencies working together to best support citizen recovery efforts. Honoring each other’s strengths and capabilities, DSAT team members work together to effectively help residents get their feet back on dry ground.
No single agency or organization has the tools to provide all the support and guidance disaster survivors need. The goal of DSAT is to make join forces to make it easier for people to access support services and not fall through the cracks. DSAT members meet periodically throughout the year to strengthen their partnership and hone their skills. New partners are always welcome to join the team!
In 2010, the Citizen Corps Council of Pierce County (CCC-PC) received the 2010 National Citizen Corps Achievement Award in the Collaborative Preparedness Planning category as a result of the DSAT program. This award cited DSAT as an outstanding example of community partnership and collaboration.
