Abstract : Inventory booklets were administered to 05XX and 242XO Disaster Preparedness incumbents worldwide. Survey results are based on responses from 488 incumbents or 77 percent of eligible assigned members. There was considerabvle similarity among jobs in the disaster preparedness field and substantial overlap in officer and enlisted jobs. Twelve job types were identified. They divided into two clusters of four job types each and four independent job types. There were few tasks uniquely performed by members of any of the job groups. Three- and five-skill level personnel performed mostly technical tasks. The seven-skill level through CEM code personnel reflected decreasing emphasis on technical tasks and increasing emphasis on supervisory and managerial tasks. Of particular interest was the large amount of time spent on training by most enlisted disaster preparedness personnel. (Author)
