Job: University Emergency Preparedness Manager
January 31, 2013
Bookmark and Share

Most major colleges and universities now have an emergency management function.  I suppose it can be tucked away in some administrative office, but a person or department has been tagged to be responsible for doing the work of preparing staff, students and facilities for emergencies and disasters.


The University of Oklahoma is one that has "seen the light" and is going to dedicate an FTE to this mission instead of having it be an additional duty.  See Emergency Preparedness Manager



A few thoughts on the position:


  • It was interesting to me that they have the emphasis on certification.  I think this aligns with the general higher education system value on degrees.  
  • The pay is pretty good, especially for what the cost of living is in Oklahoma
  • I had never seen a TB test requirement before
  • A really good feature is being in the President's Office.  This will help immeasurably in implementing a program
