    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 provide program leadership, technical expertise and oversight for prevention, public education and community risk reduction.

    Typical assignments include: 

    • Serving as point of contact/liaison and providing coordination and support with a wide variety of components within Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency(FEMA) and other federal and stakeholder/partner groups.
    • Planning, developing, and implementing programs and initiatives that support the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) mission.
    • Developing and overseeing an active program involvement with USFA colleagues and national partners.
    • Coordinating and supporting the Federal Fire Working Group meetings, collaborating with stakeholders and related programmatic activities.
    • Assisting public and private sector agencies, departments, and communities with program direction, interagency coordination and programs.
