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.

- Studying the catastrophic loss funding requirements unique to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
- Performing quantitative analyses and actuarial support to provide management with a quantitative basis for making program decisions on the size, scope and mechanism for providing insurance coverage and changes to insurance coverages.
