    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 radiological emergency preparedness program (REPP) specialist. 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.

    Promotion Potential: Future promotions will be dependent on your ability to perform the duties at a higher level, the continuing need for an employee assigned to the higher level, and administrative approval.
