Job Description and Duties

If you desire a rewarding and challenging position in public safety where you can make a difference by using your experience and abilities then this is the position for you. 

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services encourages you to apply as a candidate for our vacant Emergency Services Coordinator positions in the Coastal Region. Under the supervision of the Program Manager I (Coastal Deputy Regional Administrator), the Emergency Services Coordinator (ESC) is a member of the Regional Operations Coastal Branch. ESCs serve as the interface between local and state government. Responsibilities include a wide variety of emergency management advisory functions in support of local and tribal governments, regional staff and state agencies. ESCs are expected to provide technical expertise and training to special districts, cities, towns and counties (collectively known as Operational Areas) regarding emergency services in the areas of planning and preparedness, mitigation, field operations, emergency response, and recovery. ESCs will provide direct support to assigned Operational Areas and state agencies in times of actual emergency/disaster. Topics that ESCs should be knowledgeable in include, but are not limited to the Emergency Services Act (ESA), Incident Command Systems (ICS), the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS), Emergency Support Functions (ESF), Emergency Management Mutual Aid (EMMA) and the Dam Inundation Mapping Program. They must possess a well-developed ability to operate within Cal OES’ emergency management software system (CalEOC). The ESC will work with other Region ESCs, headquarters staff and local government to develop and/or review various emergency planning documents such as concepts of operation for specific hazards, mitigation plans, evacuation plans and various emergency operations plans. ESCs may represent Coastal Region, Cal OES and the State at meetings, conferences, and workshops. ESCs must be able to work independently as well as be a contributing team member. They must demonstrate effective interpersonal, written and oral communication skills. They must be able to function as a project lead, think creatively and possess solutions-oriented work principles. ESCs must possess an attitude of self-sufficiency in order to overcome unforeseen physical and mental challenges when support from others is unavailable. This assignment involves a perceptive understanding of state and federal regulations, as well as local government requirements in relation to declared emergencies and recovery programs.
