"Good preparations today can decrease fear, reduce losses, and speed recovery in a time of disaster or emergency. FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency], which is part of the federal government, has a nation-to-nation relationship with Alaska Native and tribal governments as reflected in our Tribal Policy. FEMA works with tribal officials to help communities be prepared before an emergency and recover after disaster strikes. The goal of Ready Indian Country is to collaborate with tribal governments to build emergency management capability and partnerships to ensure continued survival of Tribal nations and communities."
