If you are not a senior emergency management leader, looking for a change and willing to take on responsibilities for the largest city in the United States--this could be your new job. My only hesitation for someone coming in from the outside is that my guess is they want someone very familiar with NYC. Operations by its nature is a very hands-on job and it would be hard for an outsider to come in and be immediately effective in a position like this.
