NEMA extends deadline to July 14 for its survey on tribal mutual aid agreements
The National Emergency Management Association (NEMA) has extended the deadline to July 14 for participation in its
Mutual Aid Agreements with Tribal Governments Survey
. Information gathered in the survey will provide an update on the landscape of mutual aid agreements between states, cities, counties, and tribal governments. Further, it will identify best practices, model agreements, lessons learned, and the utilization of EMAC within tribal governments. NEMA also seeks through this survey to learn about the impact to policy changes that may have occurred since the implementation of the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013, which provides federally recognized tribal governments the option to request presidential emergency or major disaster declarations independent of a state.
