    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.

    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.

    This position is located in the Facilities Management Division and provides journeyman level work in a variety of trades relating to the maintenance and repair of buildings and structures.

    Typical Assignments:

    • Performing painting or coating work of modern structures both interior and exterior, frames, windows and doors.
    • Performing a variety of carpentry work and repairs on various types of buildings both interior and exterior.
    • Performing masonry work by laying brick, cinder block, and stone in constructing and repairing structural walls, retaining wall, chimneys, walks and patios.
    • Maintaining shop area, tools and equipment and providing a clean and orderly work environment.
    • Forming, placing, and finishing concrete on items such as concrete floors, sidewalks, curbing, footings and foundations.

    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.
