EM-Emergency Mgmt Specialist I
This is entry level technical and public contact work in the development and implementation of an assigned statewide emergency management program area. An employee in this classification assists superiors with designated phases of the emergency management program area. Emphasis of the work is on relieving superiors of administrative detail and public contacts in selected program areas. Work includes participation in program planning; surveys; preparation of technical correspondence and reports; and contacts with and/or appearances before local officials, civic and community groups, public agencies, and non-profit agencies to promote and implement emergency management activities. Employees will also respond to actual emergencies and disasters; provide public and/or individual assistance; and review and approve claims and assist local jurisdictions in researching, compiling, organizing, planning, revising, and maintaining their Emergency Management Assistance Program (EMAP) and/or Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG). Work is normally performed under the close supervision and review of an administrative superior; however, as the employee becomes more experienced, he/she is expected to work with some independence in a prescribed field with established policies and procedures.
