Employee and Volunteer Staging Area

The Employee & Volunteer Staging Area (EVSA) provides a coordinated system for matching the skills and abilities of County employees, volunteer organizations, and spontaneous unaffiliated volunteers to assist the community during an emergency or disaster.

The EVSA will be activated at the direction of the Emergency Operation Center (EOC). The location, hours of operation and shift of the EVSA will vary based upon the number of unassigned County employees and spontaneous unaffiliated volunteers that need to be processed and assigned.

Management of the EVSA will be a joint effort between employees from the Human Resources Department and the United Way.

Work duties include anything from administrative work to heavy labor depending on need.

Further detailed information about the operation of EVSAs can be found in the EVSA Operations Guide which is available from the Emergency Management Department.
