    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, typical assignments include:

    • Serving as an emergency management specialist supporting the notification, communication, dissemination of information, and the mobilization / direction of emergency response resource capabilities regarding Federal response to all types of intentional and/or unintentional crises, disasters, other humanitarian emergencies, hazards, or natural and man-made/technological (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, high-yield explosives) incidents.
    • Performing substantive work to build emergency management and support capabilities, as well as to maintain and ensure the readiness of such capabilities based on an analysis of risk and need.
    • Resolving typical issues concerning the application of any of FEMA's enabling statutes, pertinent regulations, and/or general laws affecting the operation of the Federal government, particularly those contained in the National Response Framework.
    • Supporting the conduct of emergency response and preparedness training, exercises, and assistance.
