DISASTER RESPONSE PERSONNEL
New York – New Jersey – Connecticut Tri-State Area
On behalf of a major disaster preparedness and recovery consulting firm, GovTemps USA is soliciting qualified candidates to fill on-call/standby disaster response team personnel positions in the Tri-State area. Team members will help state and local governments manage large scale emergency operations. The primary responsibility of this position is to assist communities which suffer damages due to disasters.
Primary duties include supporting disaster response operations at mobile and/or fixed Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs). Candidates must possess considerable knowledge and skill related to coordinating emergency management, disaster response and recovery efforts in a team environment. Specific duties will vary based on community needs and will include deployment to EOCs that are partially activated and/or fully activated.
Knowledge, Skills, Abilities, and Desired Qualifications:
Disaster Response Team personnel will have emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.
Special Job Requirements:
This position requires possession of/and ability to retain a current, valid state-issued driver's license appropriate to the assignment. Individuals will personally prepare for emergency on-call response and recalls to the EOC’s during disaster or exercise activations. Individuals will also need to pass required background checks and obtain any required security clearances. Specifically, the on-call response time requirement will be 48-72 hours.
Selected candidates will be employees of GovTemps USA with services contracted to the participating agency. Expected hourly wage is dependent upon scope of services, and jurisdictional limit, but is projected to be in the $30.00-$50.00/hour range. DOQ.
