    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 a regional consultant and subject-matter expert, focusing on a variety of complex assignments related to communication and coordination activities between headquarters preparedness staff and inter-governmental constituencies involving adequacy of preparedness program initiatives, and conduct of activities. Typical assignments include:

    • Assessing and evaluating the integration of Federal, state, local, tribal territorial, nongovernmental organization and community preparedness programs.
    • Analyzing assessment results for use as recommendations for changes and serve as guidelines for current and future preparedness efforts across all mission areas.
    • Educating individuals, families, youth organizations and executive leaders on the risks facing a community and their roles in achieving and maintaining readiness.
