Book Description :

While history has identified a need for improved coordination during emergencies, it has also demonstrated that community volunteers positively impact their neighborhoods during times of crisis. Laying out the rationale and process by which emergency managers, community leaders, and non-governmental aid organizations can effectively collaborate and integrate citizen response, Spontaneous Community Volunteers in Disasters explains how to engage, train, and utilize spontaneous unaffiliated community volunteers (SUCV). The book prepares leaders to integrate local volunteers into any scale emergency response. Protocols and flexible management solutions are outlined to ensure safe and effective planning and execution. Work templates provided can be modified to suit the needs of any community. This accessible manual provides the tools to: Assess your agency’s role, tasks, and challenges to meet community needs in a disaster Build a plan for managing SUCVs by developing internal and external protocols Develop effective spot screening and selection methods Engage community members in information-sharing and outreach campaigns Consider policies and procedures that create relevant roles for volunteers and community groups to build a resilient team for disaster recovery Provide National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliant answers to address common barriers to using SUCVs Combining field experience and psychosocial research, the book makes a strong case as to why community involvement in disaster response will have a positive impact on a community’s resilient recovery. Praise for Spontaneous Community Volunteers in Disasters: All emergency management coordinators can benefit from this book. —Howard Butt, New Jersey State Police, State CERT Coordinator Lisa Orloff has done an excellent job in both identifying a significant opportunity in emergency response and meticulously outlining how that opportunity can best be leveraged. —Dr. Michael Chumer, New Jersey Institute of Technology The Alliance for Nonprofit Management has nominated the book for the Terry McAdam Award. This award is bestowed upon the Committee's choice for the most inspirational and useful new book published for the nonprofit sector.

Book Description :

ABSTRACT: After hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Gustav thousands of evacuees were brought to Fort Chaffee, Arkansas. Affiliated and unaffiliated volunteer citizens converged at the shelter to help. This study examines their motives, traits and characteristics and compares them with volunteer information from other disasters across America and world-wide. I wanted to learn more about the people in this area and why they volunteered, what more could be done to keep them involved, and what might make them become affiliated with a national organization if possible. Research was done and a survey was developed to collect data from Sebastian County volunteers. The survey was administered through "Survey Monkey" via the internet as well as by postal mail and distribution through meetings. The data collected from Sebastian County volunteers shows definite correlations between their traits and reasons to volunteer with people who have volunteered at disasters around the world. This research shows that spontaneous volunteers after a disaster have very similar traits no matter where they are from. By showing that these people have many of the same characteristics and reasons for volunteering we can use proven methods to recruit them as organized and affiliated volunteers. The positive and negative responses from the volunteers will help me and other emergency managers see what volunteers really want to accomplish in helping through a disaster event and try to provide a feeling of accomplishment to them so they can be retained and trained better for future disasters. The training of spontaneous volunteers to be ready for the next event only will increase the preparedness of Sebastian County, Arkansas, the region, and the state.
