    Responsibilities

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is calling on those who want to help protect American interests and secure our Nation. DHS Components work collectively to prevent terrorism; secure borders and our transportation systems; protect the President and other dignitaries; enforce and administer immigration laws; safeguard cyberspace; and ensure resilience to disasters. 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. 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 senior-level analyst and advisor to leadership on the coordinating and implementing consultation documents under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) related to FEMA’s implementation of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and related to construction, renovation, inspection, or demolition of facilities eligible for assistance under FEMA disaster programs including structures related to or impacted by floodplain management. Typical assignments include:

    • Coordinating on the implementation of treatment measures of consultation documents under Section 7 of ESA related to construction, renovation, inspection, or demolition of facilities eligible for assistance under FEMA National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), including structures related to water and land use activities.
    • Completing non-disaster and disaster program environmental compliance reviews.
    • Reviewing, drafting and/or finalizing consultation agreement documents, standard operating procedures, policy, guidance, resources or tools, especially those related to Endangered Species Act compliance.
    • Preparing, reviewing, and editing templates, blueprints, plans, impact statements, assessments, and other reports.
    • Evaluating community floodplain management program efforts and verifying compliance with National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) regulations by site visits, surveying the flood hazard areas of the community, and reviewing community records, implementation, variances, and enforcement procedures.
    • Conducting training and outreach to internal and external stakeholders.
