County Emergency Manager- 911 Center Director

Formal Title: Director of Emergency Management and 911 Public Safety Communications

While this is posted on our County website, I wanted to make sure it got out to the SOCOM veteran community. We have a great small town which is the county seat, with a great quality of life, and it is a great place to raise a family, (think Mayberry).

In the vein of Pineland Studies Group

If I were you, I would run this by an Admin.. Probably Silverbullet.

I've never seen an EM role mixed with a Comm Center leadership role. That is a huge scope for one person. I'm interested to hear what type of candidates you get.

Its a small County, (pop. 4150) so not as huge as it sounds. Dispatch is around 4-5 Ft and 2-3 Pt and the EM office is Ft with a Pt assistant. We dont have a lot to worry about other than the occasional fire ('06) or flood ('96). I think the biggest part is managing all the grants and accessory paperwork.

In the county in which I was a paramedic, it was that way. It worked well enough for a while but as all services got busier, the EM director stepped back and oversaw the deputy directors of the emergency call center/911, EMS, EM, and the fire marshal's office. One of our guys who started out on the bus rose through the ranks, now an EM director for a county outside of Chicago.

I obtained my Emergency Management certification over 20 years ago. I found it very interesting to see what combination job titles there were. For example, here are some I have heard of in somewhat more rural areas:

-Emergency Manager-Veterans Service Officer

-Emergency Manager-Jail Administrator

-Emergency Manager-911 PSAP Coordinator

-Emergency Manager-Public Health Administrator

-Emergency Manager-Deputy Sheriff

Emergency Manager-Deputy Sheriff/Sergeant

-Emergency Manager-EMS Ambulance Director

It is interesting what can be created when you have 30 hats and only 15 heads to wear them.

Right. So much variation, e.g. the Building Inspector is also the EM, the EM reports to the Fire Chief, on and on. I see great opportunity for smaller localities to join together to have one full time EM with focus on the core preparedness and response duties and not have to be spread so thin.
