Tribal Leaders

Large populations of Native Americans and Alaskans live in areas prone to natural and other disasters. Tribal leaders are responsible for developing and maintaining emergency preparedness plans and systems to assist all tribal members. Preparing for emergencies in advance and having appropriate supplies is necessary to protect tribal members and village or pueblo property.

Make Sure Your Tribe is Prepared

Consider your answers to these questions before developing an emergency preparedness plan:

Six Important Questions for Tribal Leaders

1. What’s the status of the emergency management system developed by your tribal or village leadership?
2. Have any tribal leaders completed any FEMA training programs? Do leaders need more training?
3. What actions have been taken to teach tribe members about emergency preparedness?
4. Are regional and state coordination agreements modern and in place? Is a FEMA-tribal agreement or emergency mitigation plan necessary for the tribe?
5. Are tribal leaders frequently coordinating disaster relief plans?
6. Has the community implemented a preparedness outreach plan?
