Federal Emergency Management Agency

About the organization

When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 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. 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. Please visit for additional information.


Providing strategic direction and oversight to the mitigation planning team for program activities.
Delivering technical assistance and training that supports State, Tribal, and local hazard mitigation planning and implementation of risk reduction strategies; and providing input and guidance for solving regional planning issues.
Understanding and educating on the opportunities to integrate natural hazards into various regulatory and investment mechanisms (i.e. capital improvement plans, comprehensive plans, integrated watershed management plans, climate change action plans, the National Flood Insurance Program, the Community Rating System, and FEMA hazard mitigation grant programs) for long term risk reduction.
