    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 provide supervisory oversight to a staff of specialists that perform emergency management work including managing and coordinating with other entities the mitigation from intentional and/or unintentional crises, disasters, other humanitarian emergencies, hazards, or natural and man-made/technological (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, high-yield explosives) incidents. Typical duties may include:

    • Ensuring regional regulations and policies developed in the mitigation areas are consistent with the statutory requirements and existing policies and that their need is justified and they are adequately supported by appropriate analysis.
    • Directing subordinate staff to promote interest in and encourage supportive participation by all stakeholders in FEMA’s mitigation efforts at the community level including disaster and non-disaster grant programs and the National Flood Insurance Program.
    • Implementing programs to engage all stakeholders in reducing the frequency, severity, and cost of disasters, injuries, fatalities and impact on critical infrastructure and the environment.
    • Assuring effective coordination of assigned responsibilities in the synchronization of innovations that encourage and foster a multi-hazard, community-based approach to mitigation activities at the Federal, State, local, tribal, territorial, non-governmental organizations and private sector levels.
    • Performing as a spokesperson at nation-wide conferences, meetings, committees and working groups that propose, defend and/or criticize continuity and mitigation criteria in order to promote and maintain a pro-active response posture.
