Job Description

PLEASE APPLY FOR THIS POSITION AT HTTPS://WWW.USAJOBS.GOV/JOB/689551200 IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED. 

RESERVIST APPOINTMENTS: The Reservist Program is an appointment type granted under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, Section 306 (b), which authorizes FEMA to appoint such temporary employees as necessary to accomplish work authorized under the Act.

Duties

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is calling on those who want to help protect American interests and secure our Nation. DHS Components work collectively to prevent terrorism; secure borders and our transportation systems; protect the President and other dignitaries; enforce and administer immigration laws; safeguard cyberspace; and ensure resilience to disasters. 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) 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.

As a Traffic Management Specialist (Transportation Manager) in FEMA's Reservist Program you will perform transportation planning associated with the management and operation of transportation functions and commercial leasing for the various types of transportation systems. Typical assignments include:

  • Providing policy guidance to ensure that the transportation capability established for each system is effective, timely, and responsive.
  • Reviewing and providing input to the development of FEMA doctrine to address all modes of transportation at the national and regional levels.
  • 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.
  • Coordinating the retrograde of commercial trailers and commodities with internal offices, field representatives, transportation carriers, and third-party service providers.
  • Managing a transportation node to ensure the continuous flow of resources and timely delivery to disaster sites.
Company Description
Federal Emergency Management Agency's mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards.
