We are seeking debris monitors to assist with recovery efforts. Please apply - eligible candidates will be contacted with additional information.
We appreciate your interest in working as field debris monitor. Your efforts will make an impact as you assist affected communities with returning to normalcy after a natural disaster.
We are looking for a self-motivated, responsible and confident individual with a commitment to integrity and the ability to prioritize multiple projects, meet deadlines, and work collaboratively with minimal supervision.
The candidate will perform the following essential functions:
- Report to work on time at designated area and check in with Supervisor. Sign in as necessary.
- Meet at staging (muster area). Check for new information, procedures, maps, issues, phone numbers, and any other pertinent information.
- Once assigned, proceed to work zone or meet with truck(s) at designated area.
- If not assigned, inform Supervisor and wait for assignment. Do not leave staging area without instruction from Supervisor.
Act courteously, respectful and professional always with residents, Contractors, County or City officials and fellow employees and managerial personnel.
Meet truck(s) at designated loading or staging site.
Monitor and observe all loading activities of trucks, bobcats, front-end loaders, or other vehicle as instruction by the Supervisor. Confirm that they are loading only storm related debris which is on public rights-of-way or property, and that they are not going on to private property to collect debris.
Get out of your vehicle to observe loading activities. Wear safety vest and hardhat always while out of vehicle.
Remain a safe distance (50 feet) from loading operations and street traffic. Check area for children, downed power lines, unsafe traffic conditions. Report any safety issues or unsafe or reckless Contractor behavior to your Supervisor.
Call Supervisor if you cannot determine debris eligibility or have any questions about policies, procedures, or your responsibilities.
Make sure truck is fully loaded and safe to travel: tailgate is secure, debris trimmed and not sticking out of sides or piled too high to ensure debris not likely to fall off.
Make sure Contractors pick up all eligible debris, and that they clear branches and other debris off roadway and private driveways before moving on.
Fill out load Tickets carefully: accuracy and completeness are critical. Always reference name of the street debris came from and the nearest cross street. Write neatly and hard enough to make sure all copies are clearly legible. Sign all tickets.
Retain bottom copy of load ticket and give the rest to the truck driver. Log the information from the ticket into a ticket log sheet.
Ensure you and the truck driver agree where he/she will be going after disposing of debris. Get their mobile phone numbers and give them your mobile number.
While trucks are in transit to and from the Disposal Site, scout the area for debris and log ineligible piles, update maps of debris collection progress, locate special debris (white goods, stumps, hazardous waste) and log and map.
If bobcats or loader continue to move debris while trucks are away, stay and monitor their activities to ensure they do not go on to private property to get debris.
Record all damages caused by Contractor to private property or public utilities. Call Supervisor to report damages.
When Trucks are finished for the day call your Supervisor to report in to designated area. Return to base if not assigned to another truck or task.
Turn in all tickets, logs, maps and field forms. Update master map if required.
Brief Supervisor on day's activities, debris collection progress, issues or problems.
Check for information updates, scheduled meetings, or next assignment as necessary.
Sign out on both the roster and your time sheet. Have Supervisor verify and sign.
