    Responsibilities

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is calling on those who want to help protect American interests and secure our Nation.

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.

    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 support the delivery of transportation management efforts with other emergency management stakeholders and partners. Typical assignments include:

    • Providing oversight and management of transportation assets such as trailers and containers.
    • Researching, developing and maintaining load plans for transportation capabilities ensuring that any special needs are considered and planned for in accordance
      with Federal regulatory requirements.
    • Controlling the flow of capabilities into the incident area through the use of information technology tools that track resources.
    • Advising customers of any special handling requirements.
    • Providing detailed instructions for one or more units moving by highway, water, rail or air transportation.
    • Assisting to verify and resolve customer or shipper discrepancies.
    • Accurately capturing trailer number/license plates/tracking.

    Travel Required

    76% or greater - IM-CORE employees are hired to work on temporary duty assignments in deployed positions anywhere that FEMA responds to a disaster declaration. FEMA has established 300 days per year as the targeted number of days of disaster duty assignments. IM-CORE employees are assigned to duty stations at their home address for pay purposes and for the location of their non-deployed work assignments, to include on-boarding related work assignments.
