The New Jersey designated Joint Field Office (JFO) of FEMA had reached out to the BEOC Alliance at NJIT to conduct a two-day information based seminar and discussion platform on campus in March for students interested in registering for the national service.  FEMA Corps is a program that establishes a service cadre of 18-24 year olds dedicated to disaster response and recovery, setting the foundation for a new generation of emergency managers – promoting civic engagement, community service and teamwork.  Graduates of the program will contribute to a dedicated, trained, and reliable disaster workforce by working full-time for ten months on federal disaster response and recovery efforts.
