iTEMA Joins Governor Newsom's LISTOs Program to Help Lead and Foster Tribal Resilience to Disasters

Governor Gavin Newsom’s Listos California emergency preparedness campaign, an effort anchored at the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), has partnered with the Tribal Emergency Management Association (iTEMA) to prepare California’s communities for wildfire, earthquake and other disasters.

“iTEMA is an essential partner for California to build resiliency because they offer a perfect combination of authentic connection with California’s Tribal communities and deep experience in disaster preparedness,” said Listos California co-chairs Karen Baker and Justin Knighten. “iTEMA is best positioned to lead this work with the full support of a campaign born from the vision of Gov. Newsom and state lawmakers to reimage disaster preparedness to better engage our diverse and vulnerable Californians.”

Resilience

Through iTEMA we look towards adding to this resiliency and need to keep their people safe and unified when tragedy unknowingly befalls our community. We work together with each tribe to make their presence known not just through their own tribes but to the general public looking to contribute and give back to a people whose very ancestors held up this great land for generations.

Response

Preparing our community for disasters is integral to our overall vision at iTEMA. That being said tragedy can and will occur when least expected and in those moments you can count on our Response being timely and expertly handled.

Recovery

iTEMA’s emergency management system is not just about being there to help you during the crisis itself but also long after it’s left its mark. We’re there by your tribe’s side to help you manage the rebuilding process that is integral to ensuring our communities thrive no matter the circumstance.
