Tag Archives: National Preparedness Month
This National Preparedness Month, it’s reassuring to know we’re implementing a new emergency preparedness model in Indian Country and empowering the tribes to respond locally at a moment’s notice when disaster strikes.
Labor Day: We hope employers will consider hiring Native Americans to foster a new generation of American labor and build a brighter future for all Americans.
Partnership With Native Americans was awarded a grant from Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies, to advance emergency preparedness in tribal communities and help them better prepare for disaster response. Pine Ridge, Cheyenne River and Crow Creek reservations in South Dakota will be assisted through training, collaboration and access to resources.
As a first responder for the reservations, PWNA meets the unexpected year-round. PWNA relies on individual donors as well as bulk donations of in-kind products to provide emergency relief and other emergency supplies and services in need by the tribes.
