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 perform work in the Operations Branch, Water Plant section and will serve as a plant operator with shift responsibility.
Typical assignments include:
- Serving as a plant operator for efficient and continuous operation of all utility systems.
- Determining maintenance problems and initiates immediate corrective action.
- Maintaining accurate records of all phases of plant operations.
- Operating water treatment and sewage treatment facilities.
- Performing water treatment tests and measurements which require knowledge of various microbiological organisms.
