Disaster Assistance Employees selected for the Reservist Program should expect a notification of their hiring status the first week of September. The package will include a notification of the position appointment, salary, and FEMA Qualification System rating, security clearance information as well as a Conditions of Employment form that employees will need to complete, sign, and return to FEMA. DAEs in good standing who applied to the Reservist Program were recommended for the Reservist Program.
The next step after this notification will be the official implementation of the Reservist Program, which will occur on Oct. 1, 2012.
Phase II of the Reservist Program recruitment is expected to commence after the official Reservist Program implementation in early October. This phase will be open to the general public, including any remaining DAEs, COREs, and Local Hire personnel who were in the process of becoming DAEs.
