PacArctic LLC, a Koniag Government Services company, is seeking an experienced Unarmed Security Guard to support PAC and our government customer at Kodiak, AK 99619.
We offer competitive compensation and an extraordinary benefits package including health, dental and vision insurance, 401K with company matching, flexible spending accounts, paid holidays, three weeks paid time off, and more.
Essential Functions, Responsibilities & Duties may include, but are not limited to:
Work Experience, Knowledge, Skills & Abilities:
- The schedule is subject to change, sometimes on short notice, and the Ship Command will provide updates when they become available.
- All Guards shall be capable of supporting the ship, within 12 hours of notification by an authorized ship representative or supervisor for unscheduled port visits. A Second Guard may be required due to a change in the MARSEC or national threat level. During times when the threat level is raised, additional rounds and increased vigilance may be required.
Working Environment & Conditions
- Rounds on the ship will take approximately 20 minutes. Rounds on any visiting NOAA ship may range from 15 to 30 minutes. The approximate time for rounds will be supplied by the visiting ship's Command.
- U.S. Department of Commerce Background Investigation
- Rounds shall be conducted hourly (i.e., eight times in an eight-hour shift). At the discretion of the Command, rounds may be reduced to every other hour (i.e., four times in an eight-hour shift). The start time of all rounds should vary five to fifteen minutes to avoid an obvious pattern from being created. If more than one NOAA ship is docked at adjacent piers at the same time, an effort should be made such that both Guards are not conducting rounds at the same time, to maximize the time that at least one of the Guards is able to view the outside pier area. The frequency of rounds may be increased by the COR or ship's Command when an increased security threat is determined.
- When not making rounds the Guard will stand the watch in an assigned place (commonly the ship's bridge) that provides a view of the gangway, the pier, and the parking area. The Guard may be assigned additional duties under special circumstances, i.e., prevent looting during the aftermath from severe weather conditions; check additional equipment stored on compound for a temporary period.
- Flags ("Colors") - The Guard lowers the National Ensign on the ship's stern and the Union Jack on the ship's forward mast at sunset every day. The Guard will also raise the National Ensign and Union Jack at 0800 on Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays. (Monday through Friday, the flags are normally raised by the ship's commissioned officers).
- Upon arrival the Guard shall notify the OOD and annotate the time of his/her arrival in the security log.

The OOD will provide the Guard with the names of any contactors, scientists, or other personnel authorized to be on the ship. All ship personnel will carry DOD NOAA Corps or Wage Marine identification cards. The Guard should note the arrival and departure of the visitors in the security log. The Guard is authorized to request to see the identification of individuals, especially those unfamiliar to the Guard. If the Guard is in doubt about a person's authorization, the Guard shall call the OOD.
- Ships' personnel may escort official visitors during security hours without prior approval. Ships' personnel may escort members of their immediate family, i.e., parents, spouses, children, on the ships for brief periods. However, all visits must be noted in the security log.

- The Guards should take reasonable precautions, within their authority, to prevent theft of government property from the ship or from the pier space and vehicles alongside the ship.
- Incident Reporting - Maintain a legible, handwritten security log of significant events happening during each watch, such as all personnel entering or leaving the compound after normal business hours, and arrival and departure of contractors. The security logbook will be supplied by the ship and may vary in format for each ship.

- The Guard shall monitor mooring lines, gangway lines, and utility hoses/cables from the pier to avoid excessive strains, perimeter of the property and dock, checking for leaking hoses, loose mooring lines, and status of the gangway safety, especially with respect to tide fluctuations.
- The guard shall promptly contact the designated OOD, duty engineer, or Executive Officer, or Commanding Officer if any unusual events occur. Unusual events are defined as, but not limited to: bridge alarms, fire, flooding, unauthorized personnel, mooring line or gangway problems, suspicious activity, medical issues, and other dangers that can affect the security and safety of the vessel and its personnel.
- In the case of an emergency, the Guard must be able to sound the ship's general alarm and operate the Public Announcement system.
- The Guard shall check certain gauges and dial readings on machinery such as generators, pumps, compressors, refrigeration, or on any other machinery and notify ship's personnel if temperatures are above normal. Dials and gauges will be marked as to what the correct temperature is.
- The Guard will notify ship's personnel if any temperature, pressure, or fluid levels exceed the posted safe level ranges, or any incident occurs that will endanger the safety and security of the vessel or personnel.
- The Guard will maintain the security log of all activities and incidents occurring during his/her watch, and of issues or concerns identified during rounds.

- The Guard should not offer or request any information beyond what is needed to pass along a simple message.
- Security watch standers will present themselves for their watch in sufficient time to be briefed on any changes to the routine or special instructions from the off going watch.
- Approximately 10 minutes may be required to exchange the watch and transfer information.
- Security watch standers will not depart the ship without being properly relieved following their watch. If the oncoming watch stander does not report to duty, the incumbent watch stander shall contact the Officer of the Deck (OOD), or the Executive Officer (XO) if the OOD is unavailable and notify them that the relief watch is not present, prior to being allowed to depart the ship.
- Security watch standers must be familiar with any security and identification requirement specific to the Port of Kodiak or USCG Base Kodiak, as appropriate to the ship's pier location.
