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 be responsible for performing emergency management work including managing and coordinating communications and outreach needs to support hazard mitigation programs. Typical assignments include:
- Organizes and coordinates development of guidance memoranda and information notices with officials and staff from other FEMA offices, as well as other Federal, State, and/or local agencies
- Develops program communications materials using multiple media platforms
- Develops materials to support outreach and engagement with stakeholders (internal and external)
- Prepares a variety of reports, information papers, communications materials, and briefings which identify mitigation program requirements which serve to gain program support and describe program accountability to all of FEMA's stakeholders.
Occasional travel - This position may require occasional non-emergency travel.
