Author Last Post

Good Morning CEMA,


Please visit the following link for an exciting opportunity with the FEMA Region VIII Incident Management Assistance Team:


The IMAT team is comprised of 13 members and is committed to the principles of teamwork, clarity of purpose, accountability, and service to others. The Operations Branch Director for Mass Care reports directly to the IMAT Operations Section Chief, along with the Operations Branch Director for Infrastructure. There are 13 regional IMAT’s based across the nation, along with four National IMATs. Our ability to execute in high-stress, high-consequence environments following a natural disaster sets us apart from the FEMA workforce at large. We can deploy on short notice to anywhere in the United States or its territories. You will be provided the best training and equipment, but you should be personally prepared to operate in austere environments for extended periods of time. We may deploy weeks or months at a time when disaster strikes, so our families must accept and support the nature of our work. Incident Management is a demanding lifestyle and occupation. That said, we do strive for work-life balance during steady-state. When not deployed we may also participate in team training and exercises, special projects, fulfillment of position task books, preparation for future events, after-action-reviews, and other regional priorities, among other things. FEMA Region 8 includes Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. We are results driven and strive for continuous improvement while supporting each other through thick and thin. Your personal work ethic, follow-through, and ability to build camaraderie with our team and others will define your success on this team. The ideal candidate will have experience delivering mass care services on a local, state or Federal disaster, along with extensive experience coordinating with voluntary agencies.


Feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Have a great week.
