Job Description

Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attack (CCTA) Preparedness Planner

Job Description

B25

Planner V




General Description: The Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attack (CCTA) Preparedness Planner position is a three year, part-time position made possible by a federal grant from the Department of Homeland Security and is responsible for interfacing with federal, state, local and university partners to accomplish objectives outlined in the CCTA grant.  Number of weekly work hours vary from one grant year to another depending upon that year’s grant objectives.  Year 1 estimated weekly hours average 15, Year 2 estimated weekly hours average 20 and Year 3 estimated weekly hours average 15; however, SETRPC reserves the right to modify these hours, increasing or decreasing, as needed.  Flexibility is necessary since this is a new position that will take time to determine the hours required to accomplish the objectives.    



The CCTA Preparedness Planner responsibilities require experience and expertise in interoperable communications, regional plans, public safety training, drill and exercises.  The position also requires experience in a first response related field including emergency management, fire, law enforcement, medical or other public safety discipline.  



This position will work closely with local jurisdictions to reduce the burden of data collection, vetting of draft plans, coordinating training, drills and exercises that would, otherwise, fall on them.  Essentially, the CCTA Preparedness Planner position serves as a liaison for local jurisdictions with the two (2) DHS Centers of Excellence to ensure the absolute best use of local jurisdictions’ time. To the extent possible, the position will perform the ‘heavy lifting’ so that local jurisdiction stakeholder participants can focus on aspects of the project that only they can fulfill with the CCTA Preparedness Planner performing the balance of tasks.  



To the extent possible, the position is required to 1) forecast ways in which the position can serve as the lead for data collection;  2) formulate a plan of action to elicit information from local jurisdictions only when needed; 3) implement a timeline with milestones for attainment of objectives;  4) submit timely reports to the Criminal Justice and Homeland Security Division Director on actions taken and/or needed; 5) work out logistics for meetings/trainings/drill etc. that maximize the effectiveness of local jurisdiction participation.  



This is a senior level planner position, therefore, flexibility and ability to problem solve with a ‘can do’ attitude is expected as is the ability to work independently and take the initiative fundamental to the successful performance of job duties.   The ability to work as a team player under the supervision of the Director with latitude for the use of initiative and independent judgment essential.  Helpful, professional attitude is a must.  



GENERAL QUALIFICATIONS AND GUIDELINES

Experience and/or Education:


Experience in interoperable communications, regional plans, training, drill and exercises in a first response related field including emergency management, fire, law enforcement, medical or other public safety discipline.   Graduation from an accredited four-year college or university with major course work in public administration, planning, or criminal justice or related field.  Experience and education may substitute for each other.



Compensation:  Part-time position. Hourly compensation DOE with some benefits available. Mileage paid at $.535 per mile for eligible in-region and out of region travel.  90% of travel will be in-region; however, some travel to meet with University of Houston (10% of time) DHS Center of Excellence staff may be necessary.  Telecommute position with the understanding that working on site when required is expected.  Security sensitive position.  Confidentiality and discretion mandatory. Criminal background check may be required.



Closing Date: 11/3/17 5:00pm Central Daylight Savings Time.  



SETRPC is an equal opportunity employer.



SETRPC complies with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.



This position is funded by a federal Complex Coordinated Terrorist Attack grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
