This new employee named Dale will staff an office from 9-5 M-F and take calls 24/7 from people who have had a disaster. The new employee Dale will keep track of invoices, billing, payments, etc.  Dale would need to carry a mobile phone and answer calls that could arise 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
