    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 perform emergency management work. Typical assignments include:

    • Developing and directing implementation of new or enhanced grant programs, including the National Dam Safety Program (NDSP) State assistance grants and the High Hazard Potential Dams (HHPS) Rehabilitation grants.
    • Leading the development and delivery of regulations, policies, procedures and guidelines for the National Dam Safety grant programs.
    • Providing senior technical expert advice and guidance on national and regionalized delivery of the National Dam Safety Program.
    • Leading comprehensive outreach and communications for external audiences on dam safety policy, programs and initiatives.
    • Evaluating program effectiveness and coordinating with senior management on strategic program decisions.
