Our Mission

We provide the resources and the assistance families must have in their moment of need.

About Our Journey

Our team at the Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center is a diverse group, each member bringing a wealth of experience from various backgrounds, ranging from expertise in Missing Persons, IT, and HAM Radio, to Child Safety and Psychology. We are united by our belief in the transformative power of community collaboration, and we strive to forge stronger, safer communities by bringing people together.

Our journey began with the realization that leveraging the collective strength of a community can yield exceptional results. It was this belief that inspired us to establish the Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center. What sets us apart is our commitment to adaptability and growth, continually evolving to meet the changing needs of the communities we serve.

We must emphasize that our mission is not to replace existing Emergency Responders or Search and Rescue (SAR) Teams. Instead, we aim to complement their efforts by working hand-in-hand, pooling resources, and sharing knowledge. Our focus lies in bolstering their capabilities through Community Outreach initiatives and by mobilizing highly-trained volunteers.

Central to our approach is the adherence to rigorous standards-based training and certification. We prioritize safety and ensure that all our team members are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to perform their roles effectively. We believe in fostering a culture of continuous learning and improvement, underpinned by a strong commitment to the well-being of our communities.

At the Pennsylvania Emergency Response Center, we envision a future where collaboration, innovation, and a community-first approach lead to safer and more resilient communities. We invite you to join us on this journey as we work together to make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve.
