The FEMA Director is a Presidential appointment at a level known as
Executive Level III, which earns a salary (in 2004) of $145,600.

You can read a bit about federal positions throughout government in the Plum Book:

which periodically provides details on all the senior level positions
in the federal executive (and a bit of the legislative) branches.

The FEMA Director's position is described in the chapter on the
Department of Homeland Security, and the salaries are discussed in
Appendix 4 of the report.

Let me know if you need any more information.
