I have never hidden the fact that I am writing about disaster volunteers only. And of that special group of people, my focus is on those that work in shelters & field hospitals. Those volunteers require special trust.
I think that some of the most recent experiences in the disaster world have pointed to the fact that we need to look at all people who step forward. After a disaster there are plenty of things that need to be accomplished and not all of them require a background check.
So as we move forward in our planning for the next event, we should spend some time classifying our needs during a disaster, so that we are prepared when it happens.
So who should be involved in this planning? Emergency Managers, Volunteer Managers and of course your Attorneys. Well now you know what you need to do, and since the lawyers are involved you should get started now!
