    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 participating in the execution of preparedness activities and provide assessments of planning and preparation for incidents involving nuclear power plants. Typical assignments include:

    • Serving as an advisor for off-site preparedness activities associated with the radiological emergency preparedness program.
    • Ensuring that state, local, and tribal emergency management personnel’s planning, organization, equipment, training, and exercises are in accordance with programmatic requirements.
    • Tracking and reporting on programmatic demands, activities, expenditures, and production.
    • Developing and reviewing after action reports for drill and exercise evaluations.
    • Serving as radiological emergency preparedness program (REPP) off-site exercise site specialist and authorized agent to represent the Region at meetings and conferences with senior Federal officials, State and local government officials, and private sector on all regional radiological emergency preparedness program activities.
