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 be responsible for the overall objective of attaining a high degree of safety, security, personnel reliability, emergency response, and accountability in managing chemical agents. Typical assignments include:
- Developing policies, plans, and procedures for emergency response, and accountability in managing chemical agents.
- Providing advice and assistance to all Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) elements in their implementation of Surety related operations.
- Evaluating compliance inspection results and recommending solutions to problems as they affect mission, organizations, facilities, equipment, and personnel.
- Ensuring proper development and maintenance of surety-oriented emergency contingency plans and programs.
Occasional travel - This position may require non-emergency travel (5%).
