E0582, Mitigation for Tribal Governments

May 22-25, 2017, in Emmitsburg, MD



Any tribe that wishes to request a disaster declaration directly from FEMA and the White House will need to have a FEMA-approved Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan. This course will teach you how to develop your Hazard Mitigation Plan.


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is recruiting participants for a course designed for Tribal employees who have emergency management responsibilities, have already completed the Emergency Management Framework for Tribal Governments, E/L0580, and are interested in expanding their skills to help protect their tribal members, lands and culture.


Mitigation for Tribal Governments (E0582) has been designed by FEMA training staff, in conjunction with representatives from tribal nations, to give Tribal governments a foundation for reducing or preventing potential losses from natural or other hazards.  This 4-day course provides tribal representatives with an understanding of mitigation opportunities and techniques, the mitigation planning process, examples of mitigation success stories to reduce future losses from natural or other hazards, and an overview of available FEMA Mitigation Programs.  


Primary emphasis is on helping tribal emergency managers and planners identify mitigation planning requirements and identifying mitigation opportunities to protect their communities.


INTENDED AUDIENCE:  tribal community response personnel, tribal emergency managers, tribal planners, and tribal leaders.
