The Washington State Department of Transportation (WASHDOT) has a new position that just opened up. Emergency Management Planner
Looks like a great opportunity for someone. The basics are:
Position Profile: Every disaster whether natural or man-made has the potential to adversely affect the roads, rail, marine and air travel throughout Washington State. For that reason transportation is possibly the most critical infrastructure in Washington. WSDOT is highly reliant on emergency management plans and operations. Additionally, many other state agencies lean heavily on WSDOT during emergency situations. One of the primary plans that guide WSDOT through these emergencies is called the Continuity of Operations Plan and with other agencies relying heavily on WSDOT, this plan also serves to guide those agencies as well. The WSDOT Office of Emergency Management is seeking an expert planner with a mastery of emergency management concepts and planning skills to decipher, rewrite, create, condense, make useable and create “buy-in” for the WSDOT Continuity of Operations Plan and other related emergency management plans for the agency. The incumbent to this position would be responsible for crafting an efficient and useable plan that could potentially save time, lives and resources in emergencies. The candidate selected for this position must be able to quickly establish and maintain interpersonal relationships with a diverse group of stakeholders and develop credibility in the area of emergency management throughout the state. The incumbent must be a planner, with the skills and ability to construct an excellent Continuity of Operations Plan that WSDOT Regions and other agencies will readily accept as the guiding document through disasters and emergency situations. The top candidate selected for this position will ultimately be responsible for a comprehensive program that will ensure the continuity of operations during all emergencies and disasters affecting Washington State. The incumbent will also provide leadership, strategic direction and support in the development of an agency-wide approach to continuity of operations integrated with emergency operations.
