    When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you.

FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster

    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 serve as an Executive Officer and advisor to management on the planning, execution and evaluation of Preparedness programs. Typical assignments include:

    • Providing advice and recommendations regarding program planning and funding management issues; interpreting broad policy and program directives; and making recommendations of time-phasing of actions along with any acquisition management actions.
    • Performing emergency management work including managing, coordinating, and executing Federal emergency all-hazards preparedness activities, including: identifying and assessing risk, estimating the level of capabilities needed to address those risks, building or sustaining the required levels of capability, developing and implementing plans to deliver those capabilities, validating and monitoring progress, and reviewing and updating efforts to promote continuous improvement.
    • Providing products to line managers with objectively based information for making decisions on the administrative aspects of agency and divisional operations and the management of administrative processes.

    Promotion Potential: Future promotions will be dependent on your ability to perform the duties at a higher level, the continuing need for an employee assigned to the higher level, and administrative approval.
