Summary: National EMR consistently seeks talented and hard-working individuals who are eager to assist impacted communities and first responders on an "as needed basis" as reservist employees. Reservists (YOU) are part of an elite, all-hazards response cadre who are available to work intermittently, commit to working when needed, and travel/deploy within 24-48 hours. The cadre plays a key role in keeping National EMR ready to deploy the right people in the right jobs quickly in an emergency management situation. These situations could include hurricane responses, mass shooting(s), wildfire responses, and more. As a company we have responded to every major US incident that has occurred in the last 25 years. We are proud of our record and reputation but recognize we can't do this without our reservists. Reservists are often retired local, state, or federal civil service employees who consider this line of work as a movement or a calling. Is this your calling? Are you ready to serve?

This is NOT a full-time job. Reservists may be deployed to fulfill any role specifically related to the incident, and deployment roles will be based on reservists' skills, performance, and experience. National EMR does not guarantee length or frequency of deployments. YOU will be paid for the actual number of hours worked. Pay scales are based on the job classification as determined by National EMR.

National EMR was built on the premise of filling gaps and serving those with the greatest needs in a disaster. National EMR has spent most of our time in the emergency support functions (ESF) of mass care, emergency assistance, housing, human services, public health, and medical services as our core mission areas. Reservists are responsible for maintaining personal readiness and your "active/eligible" status. Reservists will be entering into a fast-paced, ever-shifting, high-pressure environment. YOU are expected to perform well, make informed decisions, and be prepared to work nights, weekends, and holidays.
