FCEM&HS relies heavily on volunteers before, during and after times of disaster. Both individual and established volunteer agencies offer a wealth of skills and resources. Volunteers are often among the first responders to offer assistance following a disaster.
Because many agencies are community-based, they are able to mobilize quickly and assist in a variety of ways. Volunteers are critical partners in emergency management because of the unique benefits they provide to disaster victims and are invaluable to FCEM&HS and the entire Franklin County community.
