    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.

    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 the National Hurricane Program (NHP) Manager.

    Typical assignments include:

      • Advising the Planning and Exercise Division Director, other senior managers within FEMA, and other Federal agency managers on all emergency management activities related to hurricane evacuation planning and operations.
      • Independently developing annual National Hurricane Program budget and spend plan. Provides budget input to the Division Director for program requirements and monitors budget expenses for responsible programs.
      • Providing management, policy, and guidance direction for all national Hurricane Program activities, and makes program decisions and recommendations that result in significant changes in public policy and program direction.
      • Coordinating hurricane evacuation activities as related to the development of the technical information supporting preparedness and evacuation planning with other federal agencies and State partners.
