In recent years, emergency preparedness has become an increasingly important focus for historic sites and cultural institutions alike. The number of information resources, planning tools, and model practices has been increasing. But some tribal cultural organizations and heritage caretakers still lack access to the resources and relationships that would help them become well prepared for any emergency.

Getting Ready in Indian Country is an invitation to consider emergency preparedness specifically for Native American interests. Developed with support from the National Park Service and the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance of the Department of the Interior, this new initiative is intended to advance emergency preparedness, stimulate discussion, and inspire new projects for the care and protection of tribal heritage. It has three parts:

The primary audiences for Getting Ready in Indian Country are the Native Americans who are the stewards of their peoples’ heritage and the non-native cultural community, public safety officials, and agencies that provide services and funding for tribal projects.

Heritage Preservation thanks the members of the project review panel for their expertise.


Getting Ready in Indian Country is a project developed by Heritage Preservation, Inc.,
on behalf of the Heritage Emergency National Task Force, with a grant from
the National Park Service and with support and guidance from
the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance, U.S. Department of the Interior.

The Heritage Emergency National Task Force is co-sponsored by Heritage Preservation and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
