"The Mission of the Myaamia Emergency Management Department (MEMD) is to ensure the levels of protection necessary for life, property and the safety of Miami Nation Tribal members, employees, visitors and customers. The department is responsible for the development and maintenance of an integrated Tribal capability to prepare for, mitigate against, respond to and recover from the consequences of major disasters and emergencies regardless of cause. This department works in partnership with other Tribal, Federal, State and local agencies, volunteer organizations and the private sector."
MEMD was created in 2013 to address emergency preparedness issues given the high potential for natural disasters related to the geographical location of Tribal Headquarters and related infrastructure. The MEMD also works to provide resources, planning and educational opportunities to support the physical security of Tribal buildings and employees. The MEMD plans for and covers a wide range of natural and man caused incidents.
