Thank you for your inquiry -

Vanguard Emergency Management holds a federal contract with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to conduct disaster housing inspections in the aftermath of large-scale disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, severe storms, wildfires and earthquakes. Upon receipt of notification from FEMA, Vanguard EM deploys disaster inspectors to the declared disaster location to assess damaged homes and record damages. What makes this opportunity unique, is the flexibility to deploy when available. By joining the Vanguard EM team as an independent contractor, disaster inspectors can earn supplemental income while assisting affected communities and individuals recover from disastrous events. Independent contractors for Vanguard EM are paid per inspection, receive GSA per diem during deployment, and are reimbursed for allowable field expenses. To clarify, there is no employee/employer relationship. Once you have completed registration via our portal, obtained your FEMA PIV badge, and completed all required/prerequisite training you will be eligible for deployment. Please keep in mind, all deployments are disaster based and our cadre of disaster housing inspectors are called upon as-needed.

You must be able to pass an eQip background investigation and have the flexibility for deployments following a disaster. US citizenship is required.
