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.

- Operating various types of powered engineering and construction equipment.
- Maintaining and repairing small engine equipment such as lawn mowers, chainsaws, and garden type tractors.
- Cleaning equipment, sweeping, straightening, and lining up tools and other property in the assigned area.
- Reading and interpreting equipment maintenance manuals for various engineering equipment including but not limited to tracked machines, dozers, excavators.
Required to obtain and maintain a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Class B, within one year of entry-on-duty.
