We achieve these vital missions through a diverse workforce spanning hundreds of occupations. Make an impact; join DHS.

    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.

We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce.

    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  perform emergency management work including managing, coordinating, and executing Federal emergency all-hazards preparedness activities.  Typical assignments include:

    • Providing expert program guidance related to the planning, conduct, and analysis of national, regional, and FEMA continuity programs.
    • Coordinating the implementation of FEMA’s national security-related and continuity activities.
    • Participating in and coordinating the near-term and long-range development, planning, and implementation of Agency continuity programs and plans.
    • Drafting and reviewing continuity plans for effectiveness and integration with national security programs related to other federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, non-governmental organizations, and private sector critical infrastructure owners and operators.
    • Collecting, analyzing, and summarizing continuity and national security programs and operations data and statistics to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of internal continuity processes and procedures.
