Description: 

Many Native American tribal governments are lacking in emergency preparedness, a part of the emergency management cycle where planning for disasters happens. These governments need assistance planning for future disasters. Federal, and state governments, along with other agencies and organizations, have the knowledge and resources to help tribal governments develop emergency response plans. This handbook is a resource to help tribes develop and implement an emergency preparedness plan for responding to natural and man-made disasters if and why they occur.
