The Emergency Reserve Decoration (ERD) is a British military decoration, instituted in 1952. It has a dark blue ribbon, with a yellow central stripe.

Recipients may use the letters ERD after their name.

This silver and silver gilt decoration was awarded to officers of the Army Supplementary Reserve or Army Emergency Reserve for 12 years continuous or aggregate service (with war service counting as double).

The obverse is an oval wreath of oak leaves with Queen Elizabeth II's Royal cypher in the centre and a crown at the top. The dark blue ribbon with a central yellow stripe is attached to a metal ring on top of the crown and is finished at the top with a brooch bar bearing the inscription 'ARMY EMERGENCY RESERVE'.

The medal is 55mm high and 37mm wide. No bar was authorised, and medals were issued unnamed.

The 17th March 2003 edition of the official specifies that the ERD is worn after the Hong Kong Disciplined Services Medal and before the Volunteer Officers' Decoration.
