ABOUT NEW YORK CITY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

New York City Emergency Management (NYCEM) helps New Yorkers before, during, and after emergencies through preparedness, education, and response. NYCEM is responsible for coordinating citywide emergency planning and response for all types and scales of emergencies. We are staffed by more than 200 dedicated professionals with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise, including individuals assigned from other City agencies.

The Logistics Unit works to increase the City’s ability to support emergency operations with a sustained and well-coordinated supply chain of resources. It is comprised of the Humanitarian Logistics, Ground Support Logistics, and Mutual Aid and Resource Processing units, and works to ensure that the right personnel, equipment, supplies, and support are in the right place, at the right time, and in the right quantities, across all response and recovery operations.

JOB DESCRIPTION

The New York City Emergency Management Department (NYCEM) is looking for an innovative person with a background in stockpile or third-party logistics management, operations research, supply chain management, warehouse management, humanitarian relief operations, and/or other sectors of the logistics industry. We are looking for someone that would be able to contribute to NYCEM’s disaster planning efforts. The candidate would be responsible for activities necessary to sustain, grow and deploy the Emergency Supply Stockpile in support of an emergency response.

Under the supervision of the Stockpile Program Manager with wide latitude for independent initiative and judgment, the Stockpile Specialist will develop plans to bring equipment and supplies into the City before, during, or after a disaster in support of agency response operations or public recovery efforts. The Stockpile Specialist will work closely with other units within NYCEM, as well as City, State, Federal, and non-governmental agency partners to develop operational logistics plans, maintain, and continue to improve upon existing logistics plans that support emergency response operations. The selected candidate will accomplish the following tasks:

• Assist the Stockpile Program Manager in maintaining the Emergency Supply Stockpile (ESS) and Logistics Shelter Support Program (LSSP), while developing a strategic vision with practical solutions to support emergency plans.

• Assist the Director of Humanitarian Logistics and the Stockpile Program Manager in managing the City’s third-party logistics provider (3PL), including drafting scopes of work, conducting regular meetings, and providing feedback and guidance as needed.

• Assist the Stockpile Program Manager in developing, maintaining, and enhancing the City’s plan for distributing the ESS pre-disaster, during an event, or post-disaster, along with rotation.

• Integrate the ESS resources, including the supplies, labor, and transportation capabilities into the City’s emergency mass care operations, including but not limited to sheltering operations, distribution operations, and canvassing operations.

• Conduct site visits and determine unique layouts for each location (e.g., shelter storage areas, staging areas, distribution points, etc.).

• Construct a supply chain timeline that includes time-phased deployment of assets.

• Work with other members of the Humanitarian Logistics unit on budget management, procurement, and vendor follow-up issues.

• Develop, scope, evaluate, and establish emergency contingency contracts to support operations.

• Work with the Citywide Asset and Logistics Management System (CALMS) Program Manager to integrate information on available equipment, supplies, facilities, etc. into the CALMS system, including real-time inventory and the ESS Catalog.

• Build partnerships with other emergency management professionals, especially in the areas of logistics planning.

• Participate as a member of the Citywide Logistics Committee (CLC) and NYC Urban Area Working Group (UAWG) Logistics Committee, and provide input to the larger logistics programmatic development within the City and the region.

• Other special projects, as assigned.

The selected candidate will be assigned to periodic Emergency Operations Center team and will be expected to work non-business hours during emergencies. The selected candidate will also participate in drills and exercises, assist with Ready NY presentations to external groups, and will undertake special projects as assigned.
