FEMA's Tribal Policy, as first stated on September 25, 1998, applies to the American Indian and Alaska Native Tribal Governments as follows:

In the spirit of community, FEMA commits itself to building a strong and lasting partnership with American Indians and Alaska Natives to assist them in preparing for the hazards they face, reducing their disaster vulnerabilities, responding quickly and effectively when disasters strike, and recovering in their aftermath.

In response to the FEMA Tribal Policy, the first E580, Emergency Management Framework for Tribal Governments course was delivered January 28-31, 2002 at the EMI campus. In attendance were 21 representatives from 13 Tribal Nations, one Tribal College, FEMA staff and State representatives.
