The Incident Workforce Management Division’s FEMA Qualification System branch, in conjunction with FEMA’s disaster programs, conducted the Incident Management Job Fair on Aug. 22 at FEMA headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The event gave current full-time FEMA employees an opportunity to ask questions and gain valuable information on the Agency’s disaster programs, FQS and the application process to secure an Incident Management disaster title. Roughly 300 FEMA employees attended the fair, interacting with programs such as Logistics, Disaster Survivor Assistance, Individual Assistance, Operations, Mitigation and more.
“This event was important because it gave employees that do not possess an Incident Management disaster title, a prime opportunity to identify where their professional skills and experience may be best utilized to support survivors in need,” said Eric Gentry, FQS branch chief.
Many employees took advantage of this opportunity, with the pleasure of knowing they can make a difference and further assist in FEMA’s mission. For additional information on FQS please log on to the IWMD FQS Intranet Page.
