    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 serve as a program manager and programmatic subject matter expert on various emergency management laws, regulations, policies and programs, and manage the training program for FEMA Region 10. 

    Typical assignments include:

    • Analyzing staff needs and write an annual training program plan for the Region that sets the interagency training goals, objectives and investments.
    • Ensuring that the program stays on schedule, within budget, and effectively delivers programmatic goals.
    • Producing annual program summary report for senior management which documents program accomplishments.
    • Identifying, coordinating, organizing, conducting, evaluating, tracking and reporting all training course deliveries for FEMA Regional staff and support local state, tribal, and federal interagency partners with FEMA course management, organization and field delivery.
    • Providing technical assistance to state, local, tribal and other Federal agencies regarding various emergency management policies, courses and programs. Promote and facilitate the implementation of emergency management and national preparedness initiatives and programs.
    • Developing and presenting briefings to internal and public audiences.
    • Developing course materials and serve as an instructor and/or facilitator to a wide variety of FEMA and whole community partners.

    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. 

    Travel Required

    Occasional travel - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required (15%).
