Emergency Preparedness: A Community-based Response
In addition to â€œdisasterâ€ events, PWNA responds to smaller emergencies that are disruptive to local communities. Over the past decade, PWNA responded to more than 55 disasters impacting Native American communities, with our aid benefiting 620,000 people.
