ABSTRACT

This study aims to explore the required competencies of emergency preparedness officials in government when performing non-military duties for emergency preparedness, based on the perception of retired military officers selected by the Korean Ministry of the Interior and Safety. Through the behavioral event interview (BEI) with high-performing government officials working on emergency preparedness, the list of competencies for non-military duties was developed and compared with those required for professional soldiers’ military duties for emergency preparedness. With the competencies included in the military selection test by the Korean Institute for Defense Analyses as a control group, the difference in competencies was tested between the two professions. Among a total of 27 competencies, it is found that 5 common competencies (including self-image management) and 2 job competencies (including utilization of supreme leadership and PR ability) are the unique competencies among government officials for emergency preparedness.
