    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 serve as a Police Officer with full authority to carry firearms and make arrests in order to detect and investigate a wide variety of situations and enforce a wide variety of Federal, State, and local laws in compliance with rules, regulations, and procedures. Typical assignments include: 

    • Enforcing laws and regulations
    • Preparing incident reports and other appropriate documentation relevant to breaches of the peace, acts of violence, theft of Federal or personal property, and other violations committed on Federally-owned or controlled property.
    • Patrolling the facility grounds and structures to prevent and detect theft, damage, or unauthorized entry.
    • Monitoring and reporting irregularities in the site access system through use of a computerized system and allowing access of authorized personnel.
