WHY JOIN THE NATIONAL TRIBAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT COUNCIL....HERE ARE THREE MAIN REASONS WHY!

 

Welcome to the National Tribal Emergency Management Council (NTEMC). The NTEMC is a newly founded organization bringing tribal emergency management organizations from around the Nation together to share information and best practices and to discuss public safety/homeland security issues affecting those in Indian Country.

 

There are three main areas that separate the National Tribal Emergency Management Council from all other EM/HLS groups out there:

 

The NTEMC remains committed to Sovereign Immunity, assisting our Tribal partners with building infrastructure and internal capacity. There are many groups out there that want to come into the Tribe and be the Incident Commanders, the Incident Management Team, and the First Responders. We want to continue to help our Tribal Nations remain in the driver’s seat of the their own incidents, and the best way that we can assure this is to continue our work in the areas of sharing information, training, skill sets, resources and best practices.

 

We believe that Public Safety and Public Health are Trust Responsibilities of the Federal Government, and therefore, do not charge dues or membership fees to be a part of our organization. Although this makes sustainability difficult at times, we do not believe that our Tribal Nations should have to pay for what the Federal, State and Local Partners are receiving in the way of grants and technical assistance. Therefore, we continue to work hard on bringing grant dollars into the individual Tribal Nations, training opportunities to our Tribal Lands, and Technical Assistance to Indian Country that continues to help build our emergency management and homeland security programs, free of charge.

 

We are not a response organization. We believe very strongly in our mission:

 

To provide guidance and tools for member tribes to develop sustainable and all-hazard approaches to Emergency Management and Homeland Security, through an approach that emphasizes both inter and intra jurisdictional cooperation to maximize resources in mutual aid, training, exercises, planning, and equipping by sharing information and best practices.

 

Because we are a very small non-profit, we have relied heavily on consortium grants, specific contract work that is provided at severely discounted rates for our member Tribes and the private sector. This year, the NTEMC has partnered with the National Joint Powers Alliance®, a national municipal contracting agency committed to serving our Members purchasing needs. We are both driven to provide efficient public service through contract purchasing solutions and other related programs. We are only able to do this as we work together, creating a unified purchasing alliance that is valued by both NJPA and the NTEMC. We will now have access to more than 220 companies that have been vetted through this partnership. 

 

Stayed tuned for so much more ahead as we bring in 2014 together!

*********************************************

 

To better facilitate the mission of the National Tribal Emergency Management Council, the NTEMC is organized into 10 Regions, based on the FEMA system of 10 Regions. Unfortunately Tribal lands do not fit neatly into the FEMA regions map.  Some tribal lands are located in 3 FEMA regions! But for now, as we began this process, we hope this structure will work best. Click on our Regions Tab at the top of the page to learn more.

This site and organization is being developed by the NW Tribal Emergency Management Council, a consortium of more than 150 Tribes and Tribal Villages in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Alaska that has been working dilligently on Emergency Management for the past ten years.

 

Interested in joining the NTEMC? The NTEMC believes strongly that public safety is a trust responsibility and therefore there is no cost to join. For the purposes of sharing information and having a point of contact,  please submit a Resolution from your Tribal Governing Body asserting the desire to join with other Tribes in Emergency Management information sharing and best practices. . Please see sample Resolution:
