FEMA is looking for new members of its Hurricane Ida Recovery Team.

FEMA said it is looking for Louisiana residents with experience in customer service, data entry, external affairs, logistics and more with several opportunities available to join their Ida response and recovery efforts as employees. The positions are temporary, but FEMA said it wants to hire locals as a way to diversify its workforce and broaden its expertise.

These jobs are available – mostly in Baton Rouge – and are designed to aid with community recovery needs.
