How to Join

Members of the Emergency Support Unit come from all walks of life and contribute hundreds of hours in community service to Nashville during disasters and other emergencies and non-emergencies every year.

Volunteers must be at least 21 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, have a valid driver's license, successfully pass a background check, and have some spare time. ESU volunteers receive a wealth of training and experience while in service to the citizens of Nashville.
