    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 be responsible for the development and implementation of critical transportation initiatives to aid in the movement of resources and commodities to support disaster and non-disaster related logistics operations. Typical assignments include: 

    • Determining the priorities and the allocation of resources necessary to successfully accomplish individual assignments.
    • Ensuring that the organization’s strategic plan, mission, vision, and values are integrated into the work plans and work products and services.
    • Participating in the development of short- and long-range strategic plans and policy for the day-today transportation of assets and people as well as the mass evacuation of people by all modes of transportation in accordance with the National Response Framework.
    • Reviewing analyses of transportation functional and operational requirements to help determine the development work to be contracted out.
