Toolkit for Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Between Tribes and Counties for Emergency Management

Developed by the California Tribal Epidemiology Center, Californian Rural Indian Health Board, Inc.  Per the toolkit’s overview, “this toolkit has been developed to aid Tribes and counties in cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) for emergency management (i.e., preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery). Documents in the toolkit have been developed or adapted at the request of Tribal and county representatives in California, although most content is national in scope. Both Tribal and county representatives are encouraged to review Tribe-focused toolkit materials to learn more about emergency management issues facing sovereign nations. Mutual acknowledgment of Tribal sovereignty and cultural resources by both Tribes and counties will provide the foundation for successful Tribe-county CJS relationships.”  Access the toolkit here
