  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Intern (Dawson County )

    Location: Dawson County

    City: Dawsonville

    Department: Public Works

    Contact: David McKee

    Phone Number: (706) 344-3501

    Email: dmckee@dawsoncounty.org

    Description

    Dawson County has two main GIS projects for which they are seeking intern assistance. Both projects require a lot of hours manually looking at and collecting GIS data; perfect for someone with basic spatial knowledge of how GIS works. These are great projects for a student looking for basic entry level GIS experience and possibly school credit.

    The first is the Culvert Collection and Analysis. Dawson County has over 1100 culverts crossing under county right-of-ways. These have to be maintained by the limited staff of the Dawson County Public Works. In an effort to be proactive, Dawson County conducted a Culvert Assessment in 2011. The county is now looking to build and expand on that assessment. With the Culvert Collection and Analysis project, Dawson County should be able to pinpoint areas of concern and even predict flooding events that could cause damage and overtop roads. The project will require the intern to drive to various locations within the county. He or she will be using Arc Collector (of the ESRI Suite) on a phone or tablet in conjunction with a sub-meter GPS Unit. Upon visual inspection, he or she will determine exact location, pipe length, pipe diameter, pipe material, maintenance condition, and elevation of up and downstream, as well as take a picture of inlets and outlets.

    The second is the NG911 Formatting and QC (Quality Control) of our existing database. E911 is required by the State of Georgia to upgrade its emergency system to NG911 by 2020. This system relies on GIS data for accurate and updated information. While there are numerous datasets that should be collected and integrated into this system, the two most critical layers that need to be addressed are the road centerline and address points. Dawson County has an accurate road centerline file, but before it can be integrated in the NG911 system, the roads need to be split at every intersection. Intersection nodes need to be added and attributed for each location. Then, address ranges need to be added for each road centerline segment and quality controlled. There may need to be field checks performed to be completely accurate. Address points can be verified and quality controlled at this point as well.




    Qualifications

    The ideal candidate has basic spatial knowledge of how GIS works, is detail oriented, has general knowledge of Microsoft Office, and has a valid driver’s license. There will be on the job training for equipment and programs used for the position.

  • Emergency Management Intern (Camden County )

    Location: Camden County

    City: Kingsland

    Department: Board of Commissioners

    Contact: Julie Haigler

    Phone Number: (912) 510-5993

    Email: jehaigler@co.camden.ga.us

    Description

    The intern will work with staff to develop a Joint Information System (JIS) Plan and a Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) document to be implemented during the next disaster to enhance the County’s emergency preparedness planning efforts and to benefit our residents. 

    The purpose of the JIS plan is to create a strategy that will provide a coordinated message from multiple agencies during an emergency, disaster or major event.  This plan will be a tool used by the executive policy group, made up of county and city officials, the school board superintendent, and the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base.  The plan will clearly state how the decisions made by this group regarding school closures, evacuation, public safety notifications, and other pertinent information will be disseminated to the public.

    To create the VOAD, the intern will work with staff, the long-term recovery group, and Georgia Emergency Management Agency.  After Hurricane IRMA, it became evident there was a need to create this plan due to the overwhelming number of volunteers who wanted to help. Several faith based and community groups were independently organizing volunteers into action and this created duplication of services. Still, there were other needs that were not being met. Both plans are vital components of our County’s EMA Emergency Operations procedure.  

    Qualifications

    The intern should possess the desire to help others, have engaged in past volunteer experiences and have a working knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word and Excel) and a familiarity with Emergency Management Principles.
