    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 receive proposed federal actions in the applicable system (EMIS, Grants-Manager, other) and triages to determine NEPA level of review and follow-on actions.  The incumbent also reviews Agency or Applicant actions/projects for compliance with all applicable federal environmental and historic preservation laws and executive orders (EO) during the Response to and/or Recovery from disasters; and for Mitigation,  and other Non-disaster actions.  Typical assignments include: 

    • Conducting analysis to document impacts to the natural and human environments; cultural and historic resources; and writing reports, documents, consultations, findings and determinations in reference to( NEPA) National Environment Policy Act documents and Records of Environmental Consideration (RECs) relative but not limited to NEPA, (NHPA) National Historic Preservation Act, ESA, (CZMA),Coastal Zone Management Act EO11998, EO11990.

    • Completing all administrative actions as required in order to be prepared for daily work or for deployment to a disaster. 

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.
