WOOD COUNTY ARES BULLETIN NR 19.35 DATE: September 1, 2019
SUBJECT: ACCOMMODATE YOUR WORKERS.
When it comes to your group’s activities, whether it's fund raisers, disaster drills, communications support, or just having fun, be sure to accommodate your workers the best way you can. If it's a disaster drill that your group is involved with, assign your workers close to where they live, or where they work, if that's what they want. Let your workers tell you where they would rather be.
Most of the time it's possible to let them have the location of their choice, since they may have to go back to work or have other activities at home that need to be done after the activity is over, and won't cause them much of a delay. During a real disaster your workers will go just about anywhere you send them but try to accommodate them whenever you can.
A lot of times your workers will be close to where they need to be, or where they were during a drill and will be familiar with where they will be going. Your workers shouldn't get upset if they must go some where else, but it's only human nature to get upset if they would rather be somewhere, they are familiar with. Keep your workers happy as much as possible and they will help whenever they can. Under no circumstances should you send a worker where they do not want to go. This will make for a very unhappy worker and one they may never want to play again.
