I am thinking of applying for a position that states "Occasional travel - This position may require non-emergency travel (5%)" Now what worries me about an organization of this type is the PD line that states "and any other duties as deemed appropriate" or words to that effect. With federal employment being what it is these days, I see much potential for abuse. Any experienced FEMA, or former, employees out there willing to comment?

Certain positions in FEMA deploy more than others depending on what division you're in. If you're in response for example, you're going to be out a lot. When I was in Mission Support I almost never deployed.

I was hired in November 2016 as a Reservist and have gone to the Emergency Manager Orientation, I am yet to be deployed.
Can anyone please inform me when I am expected to be deployed or if there is anything I could do or speed up my deployment.

How can I also get move up from the reservist position to the responder position.

I need advice and insight into how this works.

Thanks

Keep your FEMA phone on and status as available. Certain trades deploy more than others. 0080s and 2210s are always in high demands. Unfortunately, it's only busy when something bad happens....

Thanks for the response.

I want to start taking some FEMA classes, do I need to contact my supervisor before taking any classes or courses?

Thanks.

Does anyone know how often finance section chiefs travel for fema? It sounds like a lot of desk work but is that accurate? How often are they away from home?
