FEMA seeking applicants to join Disaster Recovery Team
BATON ROUGE - FEMA announced Monday (March 22) that it is hiring Louisiana residents who live in areas affected by recent disasters to join its recovery team as temporary employees.
Hiring temporary staff locally allows FEMA to diversify the workforce while affording opportunities for Louisianans. Potential applicants can view the available positions by following the links below.
Jobs are available for local residents in the following arenas:
-National Disaster Recovery Support (NDRS) Local Government Administration Expert Specialist (Lake Charles, LA): Deadline March 28 https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/595137400

FEMA is an Equal Opportunity Employer and it notes that all salaries are comparable to local pay rates.
Most temporary local hires are employed through a streamlined rather than a competitive process. A local hire’s term of employment is 120 days, though it may be extended in 120-day increments up to one year.
Those selected for employment must be U.S. citizens who have passed a background investigation and if employees are males born after Dec. 31, 1959 they must have registered with Selective Service.
