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 in the management of the Environmental/Historic Preservation (EHP) review process. Typical assignments include:

  • Managing the EHP component review process and the environmental management information system to meet performance measures and prepare reports and documents and,
  • Participating in meetings, site visits and designating EHP points of contact; and,
  • Developing and maintaining the EHP Management Plan and incident specific guidance to include the dissemination of information to incident managers, organizational components and external customers; and
  • Ensuring that the structure and staffing are Incident Command System (ICS) compliant; making organizational adjustments based on the complexity of the incident and requesting additional resources as needed

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.
