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 experienced Logistics Management Specialist with the responsibility of planning, coordinating, or evaluating the logistical actions required to support a specified mission or other program, in the day-to-day and disaster operations. The ideal candidate will have experience providing program analysis and support for planning and executing contracts. Typical assignments include:
- Analyzing programs to identifying specific requirements for money, manpower, material, facilities, and services needed to support operations;
- Responding to deployment requests to provide logistics support for pre and post disaster operations;
- Recording and tracking the status of all resources assigned to the incident;
- Performing manual labor duties such as packing and unpacking of commodities delivered to the staging area;
- Demonstrating understanding of and compliance with agency inventory shipping and receiving, and customer service-related standard operating procedures.
