This is an entry-level emergency management position responsible for:

  • Assisting with the development or revision of emergency management plans or job aids
  • Maintaining Emergency Operations Center (EOC) facilities and equipment
  • Providing technical assistance, support, and basic user interface training on EOC systems to internal and external stakeholders

Incumbents will generally work Monday – Friday during normal business hours, with the periodic need to work night or weekend hours in support community planning efforts, outreach presentations, or instructional course delivery.
