FEMA Reservists: Training Could Benefit from Examination of Practices at Other Agencies
Stephen L. Caldwell (au)
The Dept. of Homeland Securityńˇ╗s (DHS) Fed. Emergency Mngt. Agency (FEMA) is tasked with leading the nation in mitigating, responding to, and recovering from major disasters, both natural and man-made. FEMA relies heavily upon its Reservist Program, an on-call reserve workforce that is deployed when needed to assist disaster survivors. In April 2012, FEMA announced that it was transforming its reservist workforce, formerly known as Disaster Assistance Employees. Among other things, the transformation to the Reservist Program transitioned reservist assignments from a regionally based structure to a nationally managed program. This report examines how FEMA's reservist workforce training compares with training at other similar agencies, and to what extent FEMA has examined these agencies' training programs to identify useful practices. In addition, it provides information on reserve program missions, organizational structure, hiring process and pay, and approaches to deployment at FEMA and three similar agencies. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
