    Responsibilities

    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 an Emergency Management Specialist. Typical assignments include:

    • Managing and coordinating Federal emergency preparedness exercises by way of the National Exercise Program.
    • Developing and coordinating projects and programs related to exercises, evaluation, and assessments. These projects are often complex and require coordinator with multiple stakeholders and detailed understanding of project objectives.
    • Performing as a spokesperson at meetings, committees, and working groups.
    • Serving as a senior level program manager for professional staff in headquarters and regional offices.
