Emergency Preparedness

Updated April 24, 2017

NEW REPORT:
Emergency Preparedness in Indian Country and Tribal Preservation Planning Needs: Recommendations and Resources for Tribes and Other Stakeholders

Based on mounting evidence of climate change, Indian Tribes will be called upon to respond to more frequent and more intense natural events that have the potential to damage or destroy valued Tribal natural and cultural resources, cultural heritage, sacred sites and historic properties (in this Report, collectively referred to as “cultural resources”). NATHPO, in partnership with the Narragansett Indian Tribal Historic Preservation Office (NITHPO), has prepared this report, Emergency Preparedness in Indian Country and Tribal Preservation Planning Needs: Recommendations and Resources for Tribes and Other Stakeholders, to assist NITHPO; other Tribal Historic Preservation Officers (THPOs); and other stakeholders, including but not limited to State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPOs); Federal, State, Tribal and local emergency management personnel and cultural resource stewards; and nongovernmental organizations and community members in taking action to better integrate cultural resources into emergency preparedness and response.
