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.

We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce.

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 supervisory oversight for a regional staff that performs work involved in managing and coordinating with other entities the mitigation from intentional and/or unintentional crises, disasters, other humanitarian emergencies, hazards, or natural and man-made/technological (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, high-yield explosives) incidents. Typical assignments include:
- Providing technical and administrative supervision to regional staff that deals with mitigation from intentional and/or unintentional crises, disasters, other humanitarian emergencies, hazards, or natural and man-made/technological (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, high-yield explosives) incidents.
- Ensuring regional mitigation operations are executed in accordance with headquarters guidance and that they follow emergency management-related directives, regulations, policies, laws, standards and guidance (e.g., National Security Strategy, Presidential Policy Directives, Homeland Security Presidential Directives, National Mitigation Framework, National Incident Management System, National Response Framework, and National Disaster Recovery Framework) in order to provide survivor-centric assistance.
- Directing mitigation operations and ensuring functional responsibilities are executed which result in the delivery of adequate and effective mitigation support services to disaster-impacted Federal, State, local, tribal, territorial, nongovernmental organizations, and private sector.
- Exercising responsibility for final assessment of regional resources and collaborating with headquarters staff to ensure regional staffing requirements are sufficiently flexible to enable disaster mitigation managers to operate in a unified and collaborative manner.
25% or less - Travel up to 25% is required for this position.
