Website FEMA Region 3

At FEMA, our mission is to help people before, during and after disasters, and every employee at FEMA has a role in emergency management. 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.

In this Historic Preservation Specialist position, you will provide technical environmental and historic preservation (EHP) advice related to FEMA activities.

Typical assignments include:

Supporting the Region 3 EHP Disaster Operations Lead on all EHP matters related to FEMA’s regulatory compliance for the emergency or disaster declaration, or post-disaster recovery activities
Coordinating with the Environmental and Historic Preservation Advisors and the EHP Disaster Recovery Branch Chief to fulfill EHP requirements
Disseminating technical and regulatory information through briefings, documents, and/or public hearings
Providing technical assistance to FEMA Public Assistance and Hazard Mitigation Assistance staff during project formulation, grant processing, and close-out
Supporting environmental & historic preservation compliance reviews for all proposed Public Assistance a grant projects and other FEMA-funded actions (e.g. Direct Housing activities, Mission Assignments)
Participating in inter-agency consultation under various environmental laws, such as the National Historic Preservation Act.
