FEMA Corps – Making a Difference When it Matters Most

November 21, 2016

Every year, millions of individuals suffer the effects of natural and man-made disasters. FEMA Corps is an excellent way for those who have an interest in a career in emergency management or a related field to help.

Members are involved in projects within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). They are assigned to one of the four campuses:

  • Pacific Region FEMA - Sacramento, CA
  • North Central Region FEMA - Vinton, IA
  • Southern Region FEMA - Vicksburg, MS
  • Atlantic Region FEMA - Baltimore, MD
They develop materials, collect information, compile reports, or work directly with disaster survivors. They help survivors complete applications for disaster assistance and make sure they have the necessary supplies.

FEMA Corps Members receive a living allowance of about $4,000 for the 10 months of service; an education award of $5,730; housing; meals; basic medical benefits; and up to $400 a month for childcare, if necessary.
