Description and Desired Qualifications
CH2MHILL is a major partner to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) supporting its mission under various prime and/or sub-prime contracts for Public Assistance, Individual Assistance, Hazard Mitigation Assistance, and Risk Analysis.

Our staff perform a variety of functions, including conducting preliminary damage assessments (PDAs) in the field with Federal, State and local officials, and writing Project Worksheets for the purposes of determining project eligibility, scopes of work and estimating costs to repair, replace or restore a facility to its pre-disaster condition.

- Public Assistance Crew Leaders (PACs)
- Project Specialists (PSs)
- Debris Managers, Specialists and Monitors
- FEMA-certified Trainers
- Hazard Mitigation Specialists (Sections 404 and 406)
- Long Term Community Recovery (LTCR) Program Specialists
