Working Behind the Scene During a Crisis

Published on 7/23/2013

Soldiers, police, firefighters, and health care volunteers are generally the people we see implementing measures to help others during and after a disastrous event. They are the visible heroes that are being interviewed by the media. But, there are other individuals behind the scene that equally deserve to be called heroes. They are the folks who carry out emergency preparedness jobs behind the scenes. They are the disaster preparedness and response coordinators, emergency services planning directors, emergency management consultants, emergency systems specialists, and emergency management program directors, to name a few.

Careers in emergency preparedness and management can somewhat differ, depending on whether the individual prepares for natural disasters like earthquakes or floods, technological disasters like chemical spills, radiological disasters like nuclear waste emergencies, biological emergencies like bird flu epidemics, or hostage situations or wars. Emergency preparedness jobs can have many different names or titles but they all focus on anticipating emergencies, planning the best response and solution to those emergencies, and implementing the strategies in times of emergency.

If you’re interested in pursuing a career in emergency preparedness, many of the job choices are in the public sector, such as those mentioned above (military, law enforcement, health care, etc.). However, there are other emergency preparedness jobs that you may find in the private and non-profit sectors. The following are some of the behind-the-scene jobs related to emergency preparedness and management.


* Disaster Preparedness and Response Coordinator

If you have superior organizational and leadership skills, this job might be for you. As a disaster preparedness and response coordinator, you have the responsibility to provide state-wide policies for the planning and implementation of state level and local management of emergencies that relate to disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities. Here, you must have the flexibility to work and travel in times of disaster to meet the demands of the job.

* Emergency Services Planning Director

An emergency services planning director is responsible for the management of multiple planning sections whose individual tasks in the areas of population protection planning, chemical emergency planning, radiological planning, and special projects planning make up a comprehensive statewide emergency services planning division. The job entails that you do a systematic assessment, evaluation, and direction of professional and office services staff engaged in a wide variety of emergency services planning activities.

* Emergency Management Consultant

The job of an emergency management consultant is to strategize and deliver plans and solutions with respect to emergency planning and crisis organization. You develop and evaluate pre-incident plans, emergency response plans, and crisis reports.


These are just some of the job opportunities that you can find which relates to emergency and disaster preparedness and management. Today, careers in emergency preparedness are becoming more recognized as the world is experiencing all kinds of crisis situations. Emergency preparedness jobs are no longer a pre-retirement option for people who have been in the police or the military. Emergency and disaster management is now a profession which is supported by a number of qualifications, including a degree in Disaster Management and Emergency Planning. Job seekers in this field are expected to have outstanding leadership skills, good decision-making skills, physical endurance, and empathy, among others.

When people are injured during or after a disaster, they expect good, professional care and assistance from doctors and nurses, policemen, soldiers, and firefighters. More often than not, we overlook those people who really make things possible during emergencies. When major catastrophes have turned into mass-casualty incidents, we need behind-the-scene people who make emergency plans, coordinate with authorities, and respond to all sorts of threats to public safety.
