Public agencies are working tirelessly to address their community needs during the current COVID-19 pandemic. As you juggle numerous staffing needs, ever increasing processing requirements, and shrinking budgets, finding a staffing solution can help jumpstart the recovery process.
When Hurricane Irma slammed into the Florida coast in 2017, Governor Rick Scott made a state-wide plea for at least 17,000 volunteers to assist with recovery. Scott directed citizens to Volunteer Florida, the state’s lead agency for volunteers before, during and after disasters.
Florida, a state battered regularly by hurricanes and tropical storms, already had an infrastructure of connected volunteer networks equipped with training materials, supplies, and disaster plans. Those organizations, working with first responders and city government, were ready to organize the thousands of volunteers anxious to help.
But not every state, or municipality, has weathered a major crisis and its cleanup. Regardless, having an effective plan to have in place to manage a volunteer surge can be the difference between chaos or calm after a hurricane, snowstorm, wildfire or other natural disaster.
If a hurricane is just off the coast, it’s a bit late to wonder how your supply chain will weather the storm. If landfall can happen in your area, proactively put a plan in place to ensure supplies are there when you need them most. Wildfires, tropical storms, flooding: Regardless of the type of disaster, knowing your supply chain can adjust to situations is more than just peace of mind. With the right supplies where you need them, you can better serve those who rely on you.
