This 4-day course will provide tribal representatives with the information and strategies to develop or improve emergency management programs and systems within their tribal community. The course promotes the integration of all aspects of emergency management—from preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation—into the planning process. The course will provide the knowledge and skills needed to improve the overall response to emergencies regardless of hazard, size, or complexity, and improve the sustainability of their tribal community and better protect tribal citizens, lands, culture, and sovereignty.

Course Objectives:
  • Describe the legal and financial responsibilities for emergency planning and management.
  • Identify each emergency management phase and describe the tasks that are appropriate for each phase.
  • Describe how each emergency management phase fits into the emergency planning process.
  • Conduct a hazard analysis to quantify the risk to the tribe from the most common hazards.
  • List critical capabilities required to minimize the risk to tribal members from identified hazards.
  • Develop a list of areas in their emergency management systems that require updating based on the information and strategies.
Selection Criteria: The target audience for this course includes, but may not be limited to:
  • Tribal personnel who are responsible for overseeing the emergency planning and emergency management processes.
  • Tribal personnel who may be assigned to a leadership or support position in emergency management or operations.
  • Tribal council members, tribal leaders, and others who are responsible for the safety and security of the tribal population.
