GRAYSON COUNTY, TEXAS -- Grayson County Commissioners approved the addition of a new position to the emergency management office today.
Jennifer Davis with ServPro will be the office's new Assistant Volunteer Coordinator.
Emergency Manager Sarah Somers says Davis uses skills in her job at ServPro that will be useful in emergency management.
The OEM also utilizes a business person with Tyson Foods as their main volunteer coordinator.
Somers says this support is crucial to their operations.
"We did name a volunteer coordinator in 2009, but we're getting to where we can't get all the work done with just one. These are really significant public, private partnerships between Grayson County and Tyson Foods and now with ServPro of Sherman/Denison," Somers said.
Somers says her office has received about 40-thousand hours of volunteer time since October.
