    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.

    This position is located in the Mt. Weather Emergency Operations Center (MWEOC), Facilities Management Division, Engineering Branch, providing support to the agency’s Facilities Management program, including design, drafting and contractor monitoring functions.

    In this position you will serve as an Engineering Technician. Typical assignments include:

    • Preparing designs and specifications and other required contract documents.
    • Designing and developing technical drawings using drawing software and specifications.
    • Performing or directing surveys and field investigations to determine existing condition and layout information.
    • Performing technical review of contractor-prepared designs and specifications of systems.
    • Coordinating and conducting periodic review of contractor construction projects.

    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.
