In public emergencies, the role of the community is increasing day by day, and community volunteers are one of the important subjects of community volunteer service activities. Community X also uses the concept of "small community, big co-governance" to gradually form a unique "volunteer +" model. From the perspective of motivation of community emergency volunteers, they can be divided into spontaneous participation type of spirit satisfaction, social responsibility type represented by party members, organization mobilization type of other units, informal volunteer team type of independent organization, and mixed type of collaborative governance. However, it is not enough to rely only on a single motivation and subject participation. Community volunteers need to cooperate with multiple subjects such as other social organizations to maximize the prevention and control efficiency. However, there are still some problems in the operation of "volunteer +" mode, such as insufficient incentive, unclear participation channels, imperfect rights protection system and insufficient specialization. In order to improve the efficiency of community volunteer service, it is necessary to improve the incentive system, expand participation channels, enhance professional training, improve the degree of legalization, and improve the degree of collaborative governance.
