Sovereign Indian nations are gathering data and using HAZUS for mitigation planning despite the Reservation designation of “unincorporated area” without publicly accessible data. A responsible PDM plan for an Indian reservation gathers essential data for and about the reservation and examines the relationships and capabilities that exist between the tribal government and its local-government counterpart. These governments have similar missions: to protect their people and assets. These shared goals are best achieved by working together to mitigate risks. Those cooperative efforts are currently being advanced on numerous reservations by leveraging the dynamic strengths of HAZUS-MH technology.
