FEMA Announces Emergency Management Exchange

FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell announced today that FEMA is accepting applications for the agency's new emergency manager exchange program. The staff program will allow local, state, tribal, and territorial emergency managers and government officials to work with FEMA leadership to develop and implement emergency management policies and programs.

Strengthening Collaboration

Every goal of the “2022-2026 FEMA Strategic Plan” begins with a renewed focus on strengthening the emergency management workforce. The Emergency Management Exchange will bring four dedicated public servants from non-federal governmental offices or programs into FEMA Headquarters for six-month paid work exchanges.

Once selected, the exchange participants will work alongside senior leadership and their staffs within FEMA’s Office of Response and Recovery or Resilience. This new exchange opportunity will bring FEMA closer to our stakeholders as we strengthen community resilience, and ultimately, help people, before, during and after disasters.

Nearly 40 state emergency management programs already host FEMA staff through the FEMA Integration Teams. The EMX builds from that success to allow emergency managers from around the country to work with FEMA at its Headquarters in Washington, D.C. where FEMA’s policies and programs are developed. This increased collaboration between emergency management leaders will facilitate idea development and information sharing.

Applications by Nomination

The six-month program will run from July to December 2022, with a future session from January to June 2023. Each participant’s host government organization must nominate their applicant.

The home governmental organization will be reimbursed for the cost of the participant’s salary up to the federal GS-13 level, plus benefits, travel costs, and federal per diem in Washington, D.C. for the duration of the assignment. The exchange is authorized under the Intergovernmental Personnel Act Mobility Program.

Please see the attached nomination instructions document for exchange position descriptions and additional information.
