    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 manage the day to day operations of the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) library, develop and maintain the library collection and improve, maintain and evaluate library operations and programs.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Establishing internal Library policies and procedures for collection development, acquisitions, cataloging and indexing, reference services and circulation including technical materials for the fire services and emergency management.
    • Managing an international repository of professional fire service and emergency management publications and articles, including doctoral level studies developed as the result of Federal grants.
    • Providing comprehensive reference services to National Fire Academy (NFA) and Emergency Management Institute (EMI) students.
    • Creating, maintaining and disseminating operational, technical, educational and marketing information in a variety of formats through administration of the USFA Publications Center, Media Production Center, and the USFA website.
