ODPS Ohio Emergency Management Agency Donations and Volunteer Management Annex

Donations and Volunteer Management Annex


As the lead agency for Donations and Volunteer Management, Ohio EMA determines the need to activate a toll free Donations Hotline or open a Donation Warehouse. Other planning efforts continue through Volunteer Reception Center concepts and how donations operations specifically coordinate into long-term recovery operations and groups. As a part of this program, the Plans Branch instructs the G-288 Donations Management Workshop at state and county levels to governmental and volunteer organizations.

During emergencies, unplanned deliveries of donated goods and services to a disaster site can jam distribution channels, overwhelm volunteer agencies and hamper life-saving operations. This system is designed to receive, process and distribute a wide variety of donated goods and services that are given and sought to assist disaster victims.
