EugeneThe materials presented in this report were secured as part of a "training mission" and should not be construed as the result of a systematic field study. The observations and statements presented are based on semistructured discussions with some of the higher eschelon personnel in each of the local organizations which were signicantly involved in the incident. Because the incident was a case of potential rather than actual disaster, the research effort was deliberately limited to obtaining a general rather than a detailed picture of what had occurred. Thus, the findings are presented as hypotheses rather than conclusions. The report includes a very brief summeary of the events surrounding an explosion on November 13, 1963 at the Medina Facility of the United States Atomic Energy Commission near San Antonio, Texas. Following the description several hypotheses are presented and their significance for organizational planning for emergency conditions is discussed.

There is a change from a Gesellschaft-style society to one where relationships and interaction between people are based on Gemeinschaft-style sentiments. An analysis of the reaction of volunteers in such situations must accordingly take account of this transformed nature of society. Modern impersonal society normally provides little reason or scope for voluntaristic or altruistic actions. Inasmuch as there is volunteerism, it is generally channeled through some organized or organizational means. In contrast to this, disaster often evokes many and varied instances of volunteer activity, part of it in terms of previously planned organization, much of it spontaneous on a group or individual basis. Such a response, different from normal social life, is a consequence of the transformation whereby the basic sentiments shift from Gesellschaft to Gemeinschaft. Since even those organizations geared to disaster activities reach their maximum response through the utilization of volunteer activity, an awareness of transformation, coupled with a judicious utilization of volunteers, would contribute to the overall effectiveness of such organizations.
