Hazard Mitigation Plan
Quapaw Nation Preparing an update to their Hazard Mitigation Plan in 2022
The Quapaw Nation is nearing completion on a yearlong planning process to update their Hazard Mitigation Plan for impacts of natural disasters.
Responding to federal mandates in the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390), the Nation is updating their 2017 Hazard Mitigation Plan, and their mitigation strategies that can be applied to the planning area in an effort to enhance resilience on the reservation.
This planning process is being led by John "Randy" Jackson of the Quapaw Nation Emergency Management Department, with support from the planning committee.
During the process, tribal members and local citizens were asked to contribute by sharing local knowledge of the area's vulnerability to hazards based on past occurrences. Public involvement was solicited via a multimedia campaign that included public meetings, web-based information, questionnaires and updates on the plan's progress at Quapaw Tribe.
This website will serve as the primary means for the public to gain information on the plan and ways that they can participate in the planning process. The public is highly encouraged to provide input on all phases of this plan's development.
Any questions or comments regarding this process are encouraged and should be emailed to Randy Jackson, Quapaw Nation Emergency Management or call him at (918) 542-1853.
