    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 including managing, and coordinating with other entities, the prevention of, protection from, preparedness for, response to, mitigation from and/or mitigation of 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 assignments include:

    • Promoting community participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) which has a goal to reduce the impact of flooding on private and public structures by providing affordable insurance for property owners.
    • Evaluating participating NFIP community ordinances and the enforcement of floodplain management regulation, which will mitigate the effects of flooding on new or improved structures and other development.
    • Documenting non-compliance with NFIP floodplain management regulations and provides guidance to state and local officials on necessary corrective actions.
    • Providing training and technical support to participating NFIP community and state officials in the implementation of their floodplain management programs and regulations.
    • Participating in public meetings to provide flood risk awareness and mitigation techniques to reduce the physical and financial impact of flood damages.

    Promotion Potential: Future promotions will be dependent on your ability to perform the duties at a higher level, the continuing need for an employee assigned to the higher level, and administrative approval.
