    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, typical assignments include:

    • Providing supervisory oversight for a staff that performs work involved in managing, and coordinating with other entities for recovery from intentional and/or unintentional crises, disasters, other humanitarian emergencies, hazards, or natural and man made/technological incidents.
    • Ensuring guidance focuses on recovery, complying with and following emergency management related directives, regulations, policies, laws, standards and guidance.
    • Resolving a broad range of issues concerning the application of any of FEMA's enabling statutes, pertinent regulations, and/or general laws affecting the delivery of recovery programs.
