 Northwest Colorado Council of Governments (NWCCOG) is seeking a qualified individual to serve as the coordinator for the Northwest All Hazards Emergency Management Region (NWAHEMR).

The NWAHEMR is a ten-county region located in the northwest corner of the state. It is comprised of Eagle, Garfield, Grand, Jackson, Mesa, Moffat, Pitkin, Rio Blanco, Routt, and Summit counties. An Executive Board, made up of each county’s Emergency Manager, meets on a regular basis to develop strategies to improve the emergency preparedness of the region through the use of homeland security grant funds from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. NWCCOG provides fiscal management and program coordination for the NWAHEMR.  The Coordinator does not make decisions for the NWAHEMR or individual entities within the NWAHEMR, but rather facilitates information and communication that will be utilized by the appropriate persons responsible for decision-making. This is a part-time, contracted position at the hourly rate of up to $60/hour and the estimated amount of (yearly average) time required is 10- 15 hours/week. Full Job Description.
