Our workspaces serve as a model to be a ready at a moment’s notice for disaster for federal offices for the future, designed with openness, collaboration and wellness in mind. Whether you need to work independently or gather to exchange ideas, our offices provide the flexibility you need to get the job done.
We believe that work is not where it occurs, but what is accomplished. With innovative telework policies and a nimble IT environment, you can access IT resources anywhere, anytime. Collaborating with your team is seamless, both inside and outside of the office.
Our mission requires us to deploy around the country when disaster strikes. Every FEMA employee has day to day emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires deployment to disaster sites. During your deployment, you may be required to work irregular hours, work at locations other than your official duty station, and pick up duties other than those specified in the official position description.
Travel required to support emergency operations may be extensive (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.
