The Virginia Department of Transportation is getting mocked for posting an “emergency response” communications manager job opening following the I-95 disaster.
The department is looking for someone to inform citizens of critical information “before, during and after natural disasters, emergencies and traffic congestion-causing incidents” while reinforcing the department’s role as a “first-responder,” according to the Daybook Jobs post.
