I am coordinating two simultaneous home fires right now. I am hating winter with a passion! The only upside is that the roads have actually cleared up so that we can respond.

What does that entail?



First, I call down volunteers to find caseworkers who can go to the fires with water, coffee and snacks for the fire fighters and blankets and toys for the families. Notifying the Incident Commanders of our ETA and to get the best location for the volunteers to meet with the families and provide casework.

Then I notify the local chapter executive, the Regional Director, Public Affairs, and Development (fundraising) and send out all of the necessary forms. Luckily, neither of those fires resulted in injuries or fatalities so I didn't have to notify as many people or send as many forms.

After the volunteers clear the scene, I review the casework to make sure it was completed according to financial controls and that appropriate assistance was given. I call the volunteers to thank them and see how they are doing because some of these cases can be quite emotionally draining, especially for the new responders.

And then I go to bed because it's usually about 2am.

Oh, please, I made a bunch of calls and wrote a bunch emails. My volunteers are the ones who are strong. They were the ones putting blankets around the families and pouring coffee for the fire fighters. I am just the one who makes sure they have the stuff to do all that.
