This position is located in the Office of External Affairs, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The office is responsible for the dissemination of emergency management information to the media and general public in support of FEMA's mission to prepare for, respond to, recover from and reduce the risk from all hazards.

These positions are authorized under P.L. 93-288 to perform temporary disaster work and are funded from the Disaster Relief Fund. Appointments are excepted service, temporary appointments.
