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.

- Supervising staff in the development and implementation of emergency management standards, regulations, practices, training, and procedures to recover from hazards and threats.
- Managing emergency recovery activities focused on FEMA's Individual Assistance Programs to ensure the timely provision of life-sustaining services and resources to evacuees and disaster survivors.
- Managing assigned staff in the implementation and delivery of the full range of FEMA's Individual Assistance programs and coordination with stakeholders in advance of Joint Field Office (JFO) operations, during JFO operations in cooperation with designated Federal Coordinating Officers, and during post-JFO operations inclusive of closeout functions.
