    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.

    In this position, you will serve as an Insurance Examiner. Typical assignments include:

    • Monitoring, reviewing and providing oversight including audits on NFIP claims.
    • Providing litigation support to FEMA's Office of Chief Counsel and coordinating NFIP field disaster response efforts including travel/deployment to disaster sites.
    • Preparing written and verbal responses to claim inquiries from Congressional, regional, and other industry stakeholders and developing written guidance to include bulletins, manuals and other claims directives.
    • Maintaining current knowledge of all policy and claims guidance, bulletins, policy clarifications, updates and claims adjuster estimating processes.
    • Estimating structural flood damage for residential, commercial and condominium claims.
