  • GS-0301-14 District Incident Management GS 14 PD Final 7-Sept-11 for D14 Dx rev1.docx  (33.58 KB)

    Dear Members of the ORRT, I am reaching out to you and a few other folks in the "business" to help us get this solicitation for the new senior District Incident Management & Preparedness Advisor position to the attention of highly interested and qualified candidates. The open period for the job vacancy began on Wednesday, September 21, 2011 and will run only until October 13, 2011. As always, we are searching for the broadest, most highly qualified and professional applicant pool possible for this critical position. The person selected for this position will perform the following functions, among others: - Serves as the Regional Response Team (RRT) co-chair and on the National Response Team Preparedness Committee and contributes to coordination of meetings, activities, reports, and incident-specific response. - Directs planning for and support of District level response to discharges of oil and/or hazardous substances and maritime emergencies or natural disasters in the area of responsibility that exceed local planning and response capabilities. - Coordinates with the District Response Advisory Team (DRAT) for the execution of their activities. - Serves as the District's primary representative to the FEMA Regional Interagency Steering Committee(s) (RISCs). - Coordinates the District's liaison function with appropriate State Emergency Managers. - Directs planning for and support of District level response to major regional or national incidents that are coordinated under the NRF. - Directs the organization and execution of the Emergency Support Function (ESF) concept within the NRF and coordinate relevant Coast Guard participation as appropriate. I currently hold the Oceania Regional Response Team Co-Chair duties as part time duty and as a line officer, and not necessarily as a permanently assigned, senior expert in the field, which the position requires. I can tell you that this position in District 14 will be extremely gratifying, working with a tremendous team of professionals in the Oceania region, in your fellow EPA Co-Chair, in District Planning and Response Divisions, and at the D14 Sector Commands. This position is important and highly visible with access to the District Commander for incident and incident preparedness, as part of the close CG District 14 Ohana (family), and within the tremendous community of Honolulu, Hawaii on the Island of Oahu. Relocation costs will be paid, if necessary, as relocation to Hawaii can be expensive. I believe the person selected will be satisfied both personally and professionally. Below is the link; for potential candidates ease, the basic advertisement info is attached in a word document format, and is also embedded in this email below the signature line. Please feel free to forward this email. This is a superb position for a highly qualified candidate. Please encourage qualified candidates to apply. Thank you for your help. http://jobview.usajobs.gov/GetJob.aspx?JobID=102626564&JobTitle=District+Incident+Management+%26+Preparedness+Advisor%2c+GS-0301-14&q=&where=Honolulu%2c+HI&brd=3876&vw=b&FedEmp=N&FedPub=Y&x=81&y=12&pg=3&re=3&AVSDM=2011-09-22+15%3a47%3a00 Additionally, for all the 14s, it's important as we are reaching out to good applicants that they are aware that we advertise civilian positions twice, and most applicants should be applying to both vacancies if they qualify (true for most federal civilian and prior military), but *especially* the merit/status vacancy. Far too many good candidates are not able to be considered for hire as they only applied to the public vacancy where the veteran's rule of three regarding preference is applied, and they are not one of those three. The merit vacancy can be a bit harder to find if you are searching, as you need to choose "ALL jobs (Public and Status)" For the D14 position here are the two vacancy announcements: Public/Open: http://jobview.usajobs.gov/GetJob.aspx?JobID=102626564 Merit/Status: http://jobview.usajobs.gov/GetJob.aspx?JobID=102626560 Once the position is closed, there is no movement allowed between the lists as both vacancies state in bold.
