EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.
This position is being announced under FEMA's Reservist Program. This is a 2 year appointment in the Excepted Service. Employment is on an intermittent basis. Veterans’ preference does not apply to the reservist program selection process.
As a Hazard Mitigation (HM) Insurance Specialist in FEMA's Reservist Program, you will be required to:
- Communicate HM program information to internal partners and external audiences
- Provide technical assistance to internal and external partners on insurance issues
- Serve as subject matter specialist and respond to requests for information from Disaster Recovery Centers, Joint Field Offices (JFO) and HM Floodplain Management Group on NFIP insurance questions, issues, or problems
- Respond to inquiries from internal and external partners such as insurance agents, lenders, adjusters, and Federal, State, and local government officials regarding insurance issues in a timely manner with accurate information
- Distribute National Flood Insurance Program information to disaster-affected communities and local insurance offices
