    Kansas City, KS 66101

    $50,000 - $70,000 a year

    Overview of Wyandotte County Kansas

    While many cities are known for their expanding skylines, action-packed nightlife, and bustling communities, Kansas City, Kansas has all of that incorporated into a small, diverse, and family oriented community. It has some of the big city amenities with a small-town down-home appeal. Kansas City, Kansas is the third largest city in the state of Kansas and is the county seat of Wyandotte County.

    The Unified Government, which was created by the unification of the City of Kansas City Kansas and Wyandotte County in 1997, has a population of 165,288 (2017) and covers 155.7 square miles. Located on the eastern border of the State of Kansas and situated at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas rivers, we’re part of the Kansas City metropolitan area of over 2 million people. The bistate region encompasses Kansas City, Missouri, and suburbs on both sides of the state line.

    The Kansas Speedway and Village West developments are the largest ever built in the State of Kansas, turning mostly undeveloped land into one of the most popular tourist, shopping and entertainment attractions in the Midwest. During the two NASCAR race weekends Wyandotte County surges with additional 100,000 out of town guests that we call our own. Nearby is also a 20,000 seat soccer stadium, a 5,000 seat minor league ball park and an outdoor amphitheater with a capacity for up to 20,000 attendees.

    Wyandotte County is home to several large and small industries due the quality of life here, as well as, the large amount of transportation infrastructure available. The Unified Government is home to, arguably, the largest rail yards in the country, a General Motors assembly plant and the University of Kansas Medical Center/The University of Kansas Health System our largest employer.

    Emergency Management in Wyandotte County presents unique challenges and exciting opportunities for success. We are looking for dedicated professionals who are both compassionate and competent to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from all types of disasters that can change lives of our citizens and visitors. We do this by collaboration both internally and externally across county, region, and state boundaries. Our regionalism has been recognized nationally for the successes we’ve had. Wyandotte County is at the heart of it all.

    Factoids

    There are two Kansas Cities - Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO.

    Kansas City is the third largest city in the state of Kansas.

    Nicknames: Heart of America, KCK, The Dotte.

    Grant management and budget documentation is required by almost every position at various levels depending on the types of projects assigned.

    All staff must have obtained basic National Incident Management System training including IS-100, IS-200, IS-700 and IS-800. It is preferred that staff have also taken the FEMA Professional Development Series.
