    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 Supervisory Fire Programs Specialist with the United States Fire Administration (USFA).

    Typical assignments include:

    • Managing and directing a national-level information and outreach program in fire prevention, public education, detection, and suppression.

    • Planning, developing, managing, directing, evaluating, and coordinating the programs, resources and personnel of the Branch.

    • Collaborating and negotiating with unit/organizational managers from National Fire Programs, USFA and FEMA.

    • Overseeing public fire and life safety education initiatives and the coordination of fire and emergency medical services best practices for nationwide implementation.

    • Executing fire and emergency medical service matters including arson, fire protection, prevention, preparedness and community risk reduction, fire and life safety codes, and public education and outreach.
