    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.

    In this position, you will support the delivery of disaster recovery efforts with other emergency management stakeholders and partners.  Typical assignments include:

    • Administering Mass Care / Emergency Assistance programs and plans impacting the delivery of recovery programs and services to support individuals and communities affected by disasters.
    • Serving as an Emergency Management Specialist performing program support work for staff at FEMA headquarters and Regional Offices, as well as emergency management partners engaging in disaster response and recovery.  
    • Supporting the implementation of the National Response Framework and the National Disaster Recovery Framework.
    • Preparing project papers, staff reports, and organizing/delivering briefings.
    • Performing technical writing functions [reviewing various plans and guidance and providing feedback as they relate to Mass Care / Emergency Assistance activities].

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.

    Travel Required

    Occasional travel - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required.

    Supervisory status
