ESS Intro Orientation
When disaster strikes, Emergency Social Services (ESS) volunteers will be relied upon to assist those who have been impacted by disaster. Volunteers are trained to operate reception and group lodging centers during emergencies. When activated, these centers provide basic needs to evacuees including food, clothing, lodging, pet services, and other required services. In addition, volunteers can participate in a variety of other committees such as the Volunteer, Pet, Public Education and Exercise planning committees.
