Job Description

Assistant Director, Emergency Management - Department of Public and Environmental Safety-18001662
Description

The Department of Public & Environmental Safety exists to support the goals of the university – teaching, research and patient care – by fostering a safe and secure environment in which members of the Tufts community can learn, work and live. Whereas safety and security is a responsibility shared by the entire community, the mission is achieved by applying leadership and our unique expertise to partnerships designed to prevent loss, reduce harm, and solve problems. The Office of Emergency Management seeks to minimize the effects of disasters and help the university to remain focused on its chief goals by administering a university emergency management program to prevent hazards; mitigate risks; and prepare for, respond to, and recover from major incidents.

The Assistant Director assumes a lead role in the Emergency Management program’s activities to prepare for disasters and sustain critical operations and mission continuity. In collaboration with the Director and other relevant stakeholders, the Assistant Director develops relationships with administrators and operations personnel throughout the university, developing stakeholder-engaged planning, training and exercises designed to evaluate plans and build preparedness, and to assess the management of resources used in emergency response. The Assistant Director’s activities are aligned with long-term resilience-building activities and strategic risk reduction. The Assistant Director acts as the successor to the Director as Emergency Manager during major incident response.
