    Responsibilities

    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 assist public and private sector departments/agencies/communities with mitigating wildland fire in the urban interface, including risk assessment, program direction, loss mitigation programs, interagency coordination, and pre-suppression components of national wildfire fire mitigation programs.

     Typical assignments include:

    • Providing technical assistance to government, public and private sector departments/agencies/communities with mitigating wildland fire in the urban interface.

    • Serving as a subject matter expert for fire services related departments/agencies/organizations with wildland fire education program development.

    • Serving as USFA technical representative in the identification and mitigation of wildland urban interface issues, threat,  and risks to homeowners and communities from wildland fire and hazardous interface fuels for establishment of fire adapted communities. 

    • Implementing wildfire mitigation program implementation and maintenance activities in support of USFA programs.
