    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 serve as a Supervisory Emergency Management Specialist. Typical assignments include:

    • Supervising and managing staff within the National Preparedness Division, Technological Hazards Branch.
    • Managing the Region III Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program.
    • Providing oversight of work that involves the coordination of emergency response and preparedness training, exercises, and local assistance.
    • Participating in the development of national program guidelines, chairing or serving on national and/or regional technical committees, panels and working groups, and representing the Region in a variety of intergovernmental, private sector, national or international forums.
