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.

- Supporting all aspects of the civil rights functions for federally assisted and federally conducted programs and writing civil rights program policies, directives and instructions.

- Representing the Office of Equal Rights in special interest initiatives to meet the needs of disaster survivor.
- Serving as a Lead Equal Rights Advisor when deployed, functioning as principal adviser and coordinating with major programs and carrying out special tasks or projects.
