Good point, Richard!  There are certainly as many volunteers involved in
times of emergency as paid employees.  The SEAOSC Emergency Response effort
ON A VOLUNTEER BASIS made a significant impact.  Myself and many, many
others put in weeks of unpaid time.  I think the reward is internal and I
mention it only to support  anti-pomposity.
