    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.

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.

    In this position, you will be responsible for planning, implementation, monitoring, analysis, and evaluation of data outreach initiatives..

    Typical assignments include:

    • Monitoring developments in special field(s) of expertise and trends in fire and emergency service data management and operations, public activities, and national developments that may warrant investigation and research ensuring that USFA is on the leading edge of relevant initiatives and trends in that area.
    • Establishing partnerships and working relationships with organizations and agencies in the fire service and emergency response community as well as allied fields such as NFIRS state program managers, national fire and emergency services trade associations, private sector data organizations, academic research institutions and federal partners, for the purpose of advancing a data, statistical, and NFIRS outreach to the fire service.
    • Coordinating activities with other USFA Divisions, other directorates within FEMA, and other Federal Agencies.
