Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need.

    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 the  Training, Education & Exercises Branch Chief within the National Preparedness Division providing supervisory oversight for the staff that performs work involved in managing and coordinating regional delivery of training and exercises, continuous improvement, and continuity of operations programs. 

    Typical assignments include:

    • Applying a wide range of emergency management knowledge and skills to provide expert advice, guidance, and policy interpretation on a wide range variety of emergency preparedness issues, many of which are complex, controversial, and precedent setting.
    • Having oversight of the development and documentation of short and long-range planning efforts.
    • Performing work that involves the coordination of emergency response and preparedness training, exercises, and local assistance.
    • Serving as an expert consultant and staff advisor to the Federal Preparedness Coordinator on assigned program areas of responsibility.
    • Performing as a spokesperson at nation-wide conferences, meetings, committees and working groups that propose, defend and/or criticize continuity and emergency response criteria, in order to promote and maintain a pro-active response posture.
