The Hualapai Tribe maintains a continuing interest in the protection of its people, homeland and assets  including the town of Peach Springs, satellite properties in Valentine and at the Big Sandy near Wikieup, Arizona and Grand Canyon West.  These areas face the threat of several potential disaster situations. It therefore; promotes a collaboration of efforts between established public safety and tribal departments on Hualapai Lands to engage in real-life disaster relief situations and preparedness  scenarios to better protect and manage public safety and well being.

                                                                   

   Among the potential disasters that these areas face are wildfire, drought, flooding, hazardous materials spills, earthquake and terrorism. This Risk Assessment for the Hualapai Reservation is an effort to identify potential hazards, their potential location, the losses that could be expected as a result of a disaster and the potential mitigation activities that may reduce the severity of loss in future disasters. The list of potentially affected areas was developed by the Hualapai Department of Natural Resources staff in conjunction with the tribe’s Interdisciplinary Team (IDT).


The Hualapai Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan received funding from grant dollars available through Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the Department of Homeland Security. The Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan (PDM) program provides funds to states, territories, Indian tribal governments, communities, and universities for hazard mitigation planning and the implementation of mitigation projects prior to a disaster event. Funding these plans and projects reduces overall risks to the population and structures, while also reducing reliance on funding from actual disaster declarations.
