Responsibilities

When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to support survivors and first responders in communities all across the United States of America and its territories.  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.

Now FEMA looks to you, join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. We are seeking talented individuals who are eager to assist disaster survivors on an intermittent, on-call basis. FEMA Reservists are incident management responders, hired under the Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Reservists are a significant factor in the agency workforce in responding to disasters. These employees deploy to perform activities directly related to disasters, emergencies, projects, or activities of a non-continuous nature. Reservist positions are temporary appointments within the Excepted Service and are not to exceed 2 years in duration. Work opportunities are intermittent due to the irregular nature of disasters and Reservist employees are not guaranteed regular recurring hours, deployments, or renewal of employment.  Apply for this exciting opportunity to become a FEMA Reservist!

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 provide subject matter expertise and support during the historic preservation process review. Primary duties include the following:

  • Making recommendations on historic preservation policy and procedures, program guidance, and training information on historic preservation compliance issues;
  • Developing and maintaining liaison with State, Tribal, and Federal resource agencies, and private sector organizations, in order to coordinate compliance issues, disseminate technical information, and maintain knowledge of government-wide programs and initiatives associated with implementation of historic preservation laws and their impact on the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, and related disaster assistance laws;
  • Analyzing and recommending implementation of guidance, policies, procedures, and directives to enhance historic preservation compliance strategies and further integrate considerations into the delivery of FEMA’s assistance programs;
  • Identifying historic resource considerations in a Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) and undertakings in accordance with the National Historic Preservation Act; and
  • Providing all assistance to the supervisor and staff on assignments in support of FEMA’s disaster programs by researching historic preservation compliance requirements procedures and guidelines to effectively and expeditiously ensure compliance with appropriate historic requirements.

Travel Required

75% or less - In addition to frequent travel related to deployment(s), occasional non-emergency travel may also be required.
