TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is hiring. Officials say the agency is currently looking to fill a variety of full-time, temporary positions to help with recovery efforts from Hurricane Hermine and Hurricane Matthew.

Friday, FEMA officials announced that they are working together with the Employ Florida Marketplace to hire as many as 100 local employees in the Tallahassee area for a wide range of jobs, including applicant services, environmental protection and congressional affairs.

Officials say hiring local workers is ideal because it allows FEMA staff to move to the next disaster while keeping in place a strong recovery presence with unique insights into the local area.
