    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.

    This position is located within the Regional Offices, Region Eight, Mission Support Division, Information Technology Branch located in Lakewood, Colorado. In this position, you will serve as a Facilities Operations Specialist and provide facilities management, property management, security and safety support to the Disaster Closeout Center.

    • Researching and analyzing long-range needs and critical problems for a regional facility program and operations, such as analyzing damages to assess needed repairs, construction, or rehabilitation projects.
    • Evaluating and providing assessment of the contractor’s performance in meeting operational requirements, contract requirements, and core processes.
    • Analyzing and developing new repair and modification techniques, criteria, and information required for changes in programs, technological developments, and events that cannot be predicted, or have conflicting requirements, such as planning maintenance operations for a facility which operates 24 hours per day.
    • Coordinating construction and rehabilitation projects that may be required on short notice.
    • Developing specific implementation strategies to promote information dissemination and exchange among safety-oriented assigned agency program or program announcements.

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.
