Tesla has one.....Do you?

Tesla has one.....Do you?

Tesla is hiring an Emergency Preparedness & Recovery Program Manager . 

This is a REALLY big deal. 

In the emergency management circles that I follow, once word got out on this position opening, it spread throughout all social media circles as emergency managers retweet, linked, or forwarded this position to colleagues. There was encouragement from some to pursue this opportunity and excitement from others, myself included, that this position existed. 

What makes this position a REALLY big deal is that it comes from one of the highest visibility, forward thinking companies on the market now. Tesla understands the importance of having an individual in the organization who's entire job description is that of maintaining their Emergency Response and Emergency Action Plans. This individual also "regularly runs and supports drills/exercises.." within Tesla that tests the company's response to a crisis situation. The role also will coordinate and attend meetings with local, regional, state, and federal emergency management agencies to build cooperation and integrate their organization into an emergent response. 

Tesla is a company with a complex manufacturing process, located in multiple locations. They understand the significance of ensuring that their employees are safe and prepared for a disasters, ensuring that their buildings and equipment are ready for a disaster, and that are working with those that would be responding and assisting in a disaster. They understand the importance of building and fostering relationships that will allow them to help recover their communities faster after a disaster by getting their employees back to work and thus helping a region recover again economically, even if they are still rebuilding homes and roads. They will still have employees coming to work because Tesla invested in making sure that employees and their families are ready for disasters. 

The past few years have seen some of the most devastating and costliest natural and man-made disasters, both in terms of lives lost and in economic cost. There are still areas in the Southern Gulf state that are still in the process of recovering from the 2017 hurricane season and will be for the foreseeable months. Any business who is affected will feel the economic loss that comes from employees that cannot come to work, to disrupted manufacturing operations, all the way to replacing inventory or rebuilding the office. 

Every business needs to have an Emergency Management and Preparedness position in house that can deal with preparing the business for a disaster. While Emergency Management has mostly been associated with the government sector, it is only within the last 8 years that businesses have taken hold of the concept of having a dedication person or department that helps prepare and manage their own operations in cases of disaster. 

Your business might not be the size of Tesla's or have the complexities of manufacturing that they do, but you do have employees and operations and possibly multiple locations. You might not have the resources to dedicate a single individual with this responsibility, but do not worry.
