The Cherokee Nation Emergency Management (CNEM) team is comprised of representatives of many groups throughout the Cherokee Nation government. The team prepares for and responds to disasters and emergencies that occur within the Cherokee Nation.

The team also maintains the tribe’s Emergency Operations Center which serves as a command center for reporting emergencies and coordinating tribal response activities. CNEM works with emergency management teams in cities, towns, counties and the State of Oklahoma, as well as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through a vast network of emergency management professionals.

Emergency Response: During emergencies, CNEM coordinates tribal emergency operations including:
  • Monitoring potentially severe events
  • Evaluating the possibility for securing state, federal disaster assistance
  • Managing tribal resources
  • Providing emergency public information
  • Developing and distributing situation reports
  • Conducting preliminary damage assessments
What Is Emergency Management?

Emergency Management is the discipline of dealing with and avoiding risks. It is a discipline that involves preparing for disaster before it occurs, disaster response, as well as supporting and rebuilding society after natural or human-made disasters have happened. In general, Emergency management is the continuous process by which all individuals, groups, and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoid the impact of disasters resulting from the hazards.
