Volunteer and Donations Management
Since 2008, the Commission has been co-chair of the Donations Coordination Team (DCT) with the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).
The goal of the DCT is to coordinate resources of volunteers and donations on a statewide level to improve disaster preparedness, mitigation, and recovery.
In 2010, with the help of the Maine AmeriCorps Alumni, MCCS established Maine’s first deployable Volunteer Reception Center based out of Portland. In 2011, MCCS will devote resources to convening additional Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COADS) across the state.
