    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites.

    • Providing expert level professional and comprehensive knowledge in providing advice, guidance and overseeing the management, administration and financial activities that require application of theories, concepts, principles, and standards over a card program.
