Background: Since crises are inevitable, it is essential to institutionalize preparedness measures and strategies for dealing with hazards among citizens with a comprehensive, planned and public policy. Under such circumstances, citizens will be able to save the lives of themselves and their family members, even if they had no power, sufficient knowledge, and motivation to help others or participate in DAVAM plan (local volunteer groups for emergency response). In this regard, this study aims to investigate the effect of Red Crescent Society public education on urban crisis management in Zahedan city.

Findings: According to the findings, correlation between independent and dependent variable was 0. 882 and coefficient of determination was 685, which indicated about 68. 5% of urban crisis management capabilities are related to Red Crescent Society public education due to citizens’ point of view.
