    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 Public Affairs Specialist. Typical assignments include:

    • Planning, coordinating, and executing the communication plans and products to support proactive, cross-audience communication activities for stakeholders.
    • Implementing communications strategies & tactics and developing guidance material, correspondence, articles, etc.
    • Preparing and delivering briefings and speeches promoting CDP training, programs and activities at international, national, state, and local forums.
