EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: 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 position you will serve as a Historic Preservation Specialist. Typical duties include:
•Serving as a senior-level analyst and advisor to management on the performance of administrative or program work relating to environmental protection/historic preservation programs and to ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations or prevent/mitigate adverse impact to environmental and historic resources.
•Completing environmental and historic preservation reviews to analyze the potential presence of, and impacts to, environmental and historic properties.
•Collecting data on historic preservation considerations related to potential impacts.
•Conducting reviews of historic property eligibility for the National Register.
•Making eligibility and effects determinations for National Historic Preservation Act Section 106 compliance.
