NEw jobs

I work for DHS and was part of the surge capacity. I think that FEMA should have full time employees on the northern border even if they are housed in another agency. They would be able to go and assess damage and help with disasters. The closest place is Albany and in the long run this would save on money. This person could work VT and Upstate new York hitting region 2 and 1. Traveling along the northern coast. They could be a liaison for both regions and work for the good of fema. They would also be readily deployable.

  1. Incidents typically begin and end locally, and are managed on a daily basis at the lowest possible geographical, organizational, and jurisdictional level. A basic premise of both NIMS and the NRF is that incidents typically be managed at the local level first. In the vast majority of incidents, local resources and local mutual aid agreements and assistance agreements will provide the first line of emergency management and incident response. The responsibility for responding to incidents, both natural and manmade, begins at the local level – with individuals and public officials in the county, city, or town affected by the incident.

    Noticed is your talking about jobs instead of a career.

    Try seeking a career rather than just a job next time.

  2. FEMA personnel could co-locate with state or local government offices of emergency services to improve coordination and cost effectiveness.

Local leaders and emergency managers prepare their communities to manage incidents locally. The Framework’s response doctrine plays a key role in helping community leaders to coordinate resources within jurisdictions, among adjacent jurisdictions, and with the private sector and NGOs such as the American Red Cross.
