Registration is continuing for the Center for Domestic Preparedness’ 4th Annual Tribal Nations Training Week from March 16-23, 2019.

CDP training is completely funded for state, local, tribal and territorial emergency responders to include roundtrip airfare, meals, lodging, and any equipment required during training. 

Anyone working in an emergency response capacity who is affiliated with one or more tribal nations or the Indian Health Service, and those who work directly with Tribal Nations are authorized to attend Tribal Nations Training Week.

While CDP training is open year-round to those affiliated with tribal nations, Tribal Nations Training Week courses and scenarios are tailored specifically to help tribal nations prepare their communities and healthcare, public health, and environmental health resources to respond to catastrophic natural or man-made disasters.

  • Healthcare Leadership for Mass Casualty Incidents with ICE
