The U. S. Office of Personnel Management is replacing the draft Position Classification Flysheet for Emergency Management Series, 0089, dated April 2012, and is releasing for implementation the final Position Classification Flysheet and the Qualification Standard for the Emergency Management Series, 0089.
Establishment of this new series brings into focus the emergency management workforce using one occupational series to provide consistency in describing, classifying, and recruiting for emergency management specialists across the Federal Government. The new flysheet provides the series definition, titling and grading instructions.
This series includes positions which supervise, lead, or perform emergency management work, including managing, and coordinating with other entities, the prevention of, protection from, preparedness for, response to, recovery from and/or mitigation of intentional and/or unintentional crises, disasters, other humanitarian emergencies, hazards, or natural and man-made/technological (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, high-yield explosives) incidents. Positions in the Emergency Management Series, 0089 will be covered under the Group Coverage Qualification Standard for Administrative and Management Positions.
Agencies must apply this occupational series to covered positions within 12 months of the date of issuance.
