Tribal Community Safety Discussion

September is National Preparedness Month. As recent natural disasters have remained in the headlines, Tribal Housing Departments or TDHE can have an important voice. This webinar will review collaborative strategies to address emergency preparedness and reinforce healthy homeownership training. Training that aims to protect life, homes, and in many ways culture. Join us for a round table discussion on best practices from various Tribal Housing administrators, departments, and staff on how they plan, collaborate, and strategize to develop comprehensive housing emergency preparedness plans within their own Tribal community.

Training Objectives:

– Guidance on protecting life, homes, and culture

– Outlining critical stages of disaster response, elders, transportation, and preparation that mitigate water damage to regalia, documents, photographs   and other cultural items essential to preserving culture for generations to come
