Internships @ Florida Division of Emergency Management

The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) Internship Program provides students with a unique opportunity to apply classroom skills and theory to real life work situations. This hands-on program is designed to strengthen fundamental emergency management concepts and develop the confidence and skills of the next generation to prepare them for future employment opportunities.

As an intern, participants are expected to employ their skills and abilities to contribute to the objectives of their assigned host organization. Our internships provide exposure to industry professionals and promote career development. To support that endeavor, interns will be placed based on interests and specific project availability.

All internships are currently based out of our headquarter offices in Tallahassee, Florida. For assistance finding other emergency management internships at an agency near you please contact our Internship Coordinator.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, a resume, and the State of Florida Employment application. Students may contact Sierra Perna with questions at
