Joining the Team

Thank you for your interest in NJ-1 DMAT.  Members of our team are hired as intermittent federal employees via a centralized process controlled by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Please read the information below and on the following pages, after which you will be able to complete our information request form.  Once a position matching your experience has been posted to USAJobs.gov, we will use this information to contact you so you may begin the official application process.


Important Notes:

  • Update 8/2017
    • The only anticipated openings on NJ-1 in the near future are: Paramedic, RN, PA/NP, and MD/DO. 
    • For other positions, you may consider checking with other nearby teams.
    • EMT-B's: We do not anticipate any future HHS/DMAT hiring for the "Health Technician Basic" position. As an alternative, you may consider the NJ Medical Reserve Corps or your local CERT.  
  • Please be aware that the process for prospective members can be slow, especially if a position is not currently posted.  Due to team size limitations and other hiring restrictions, new openings are posted fairly infrequently. Your patience is appreciated.
  • Full time federal employees are restricted from deploying with DMATs (as Intermittent Employees), therefore we are unfortunately unable to accept full time federal employees to the team.
  • For additional information, please review the NDMS "Ordinary Heroes" brochure
