Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinators

When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to support survivors and first responders in communities all across the country.

We are seeking Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinators (FDRC) in multiple locations.

Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinators

FDRCs lead the effort to incorporate recovery and mitigation considerations into the early decision making process. They also monitor the impacts and results of such decisions and evaluate the need for additional assistance and adjustments where necessary and feasible throughout the recovery. The application deadline is 1/30/18.

Key Responsibilities
  • Facilitate disaster recovery coordination and collaboration between the federal interagency and tribal, state, and local governments, the private sector, and voluntary, faith based and community organizations
  • Coordinate and lead pre-disaster recovery planning as well as post-disaster recovery planning
  • Cultivate new and leverage existing relationships with personnel at the Federal, State, Tribal and local levels, including the private and nonprofit sectors
  • Work with the impacted community to establish relevant recovery measures and to incorporate mitigation and resilience-building into recovery plans and implementation
  • Facilitate the development of a unified communications strategy to keep Congress, partners, the general public, media, and elected officials informed

Cadre of On-Call Response/Recovery

The FDRC and FCO positions are part of the Cadre of On-Call Response/Recovery Employees (CORE). CORE employees are hired to work for a specific, limited period, between two to four years. These positions may be renewed if there is ongoing disaster work and funding is available. CORE employees are generally eligible for the same benefits as Permanent Full-Time employees, but do not gain competitive status nor career tenure during their term. CORE employees can be hired under a streamlined process instead of a competitive process. Read more about CORE employees.
