IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL ACCREDITED DISASTER COUNCILS IN CALIFORNIA REGARDINGTHE USE OF DISASTER SERVICE WORKERS (DSWs) ASSISTING IN THE NOVEMBER 2020 ELECTION
Please note that there is a distinction between Disaster Service Workers and Disaster Service Worker Volunteers in California.
The Disaster Service Worker Volunteer Program (DSWVP) was created as the result of legislation to provide workers’ compensation benefits to registered Disaster Service Worker (DSW) volunteers who are injured while participating in authorized disaster-related activities, including pre-approved training. Disaster service, as defined for the Program, is designed to aid in the response and recovery phases in a disaster or emergency. It does not include the day-to-day emergency response activities typically associated with, for example, law enforcement, fire services or emergency medical services. The Program also provides limited immunity from liability.
