    When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

    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 in FEMA’s National Training and Education Division (NTED), Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP).  The CDP, headquartered in Anniston, Alabama, provides specialized, advanced training to state, local, tribal, and territorial emergency responders to prevent, deter, interdict, and respond to terrorist actions involving toxic weapons grade chemical and biological agents, radiological materials, and other hazardous materials.

    As a Deputy Superintendent you will be responsible for establishing policies and procedures in operations, training, administrative, and support for the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP).

    Typical duties include:

    • Providing technical advice and assistance on all aspects of program areas which include operations, training, contracts, logistics, administration, and other management issues.
    • Managing and ensuring routine operation and proper execution of responsibilities required to carry out the mission of the CDP.
    • Providing the Superintendent and Division heads with information, alternatives, and recommendations
    • Identifying appropriate courses of action to promote efficiencies or achieve long-range objectives in support of strategic plans
    • Ensuring organizational program goals are consistent with funding requirements.
    • Planning, directing, and evaluating work in compliance with all targets, objectives, policies, and regulations.
