The NTEMC is a new 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.
To better facilitate this purpose, 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.
