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.
In this position, you will provide a full range of fire protection and prevention support activities to the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center Facility. Typical assignments include:
- Operating and maintaining firefighting trucks and equipment.
- Operating specialized equipment to combat hazardous fire situations.
- Performing advanced assessment and treatment of patients.
- Providing fire and safety training using a wide variety of materials.
- Extinguishing fires in situations involving hazards that are difficult to recognize.
All MWEOC staff have emergency assignments and are considered deployed in place. Exercises and activations are planned and unplanned, and may require long hours, nights, weekends and holidays.
Occasional travel - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required.
