    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 serving as technical support in planning, development and production of projects. Using a variety of standard industry operating systems, you will work with internal and external stakeholders. Typical assignments include:

    • Planning, developing, executing and reviewing complex and unique drawings and integrating drawings from a variety of engineering areas.
