    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 provide subject matter expertise in the management of the Environmental/Historic Preservation (EHP) review process. Typical assignments include:

    • Developing and maintaining the Environmental/Historic Preservation (EHP) Management Plan. Managing the dissemination of the EHP information to incident management organizational components and external customers. Participating in meetings, site visits and designating EHP points of contact. Managing the EHP component review process as well as the Environmental Management Information System (EMIS) to meet EHP performance measures.
    • Determining if the organizational structure is appropriate based on supervisor’s direction and ensuring that the structure and staffing are Incident Command System (ICS) compliant. Making organizational adjustments based on the complexity of the incident and requesting additional personnel, supplies, services, and equipment as needed.
    • Establishing work assignments and setting priorities. Ensuring subordinates are qualified to perform assigned positions, that they receive needed training, and are briefed on information relevant to their assignments. Communicating any special safety considerations or hazardous situations to subordinates. Evaluating their performance and taking corrective actions when necessary.
    • Ensuring continuity of operations and a complete and effective closeout and/or transition at the termination of activities. Preparing and submitting written EHP reports and documents.
    • Developing incident-specific guidance such as Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and PowerPoint presentations, ensuring their proper distribution. Establishing and maintaining lines of communication with incident management organization components to request EHP resources.

    Travel Required

    76% or greater - IM-CORE employees are hired to work on temporary duty assignments in deployed positions anywhere that FEMA responds to a disaster declaration.
