  • Background

The REP Program coordinates the national effort to provide state, local, and tribal governments with relevant and executable planning, training, and exercise guidance and policies necessary to ensure that adequate capabilities exist to prevent, protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to, and recover from incidents involving commercial nuclear power facilities.  Information on the REP Program is currently found in regulation at 44 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) parts 350-354 and in FEMA’s REP Program Manual.


FEMA is interested in gathering additional feedback from Tribal Nations on:

  • Improving the program’s regulations, policies, and/or procedures to better address Tribal Nation needs;
  • Partnering with Tribal Nationals located within the plume exposure pathway (~0-10 miles) and ingestion exposure pathway (~0-50 miles) emergency planning zones;
  • Specific considerations for tribal lands;
  • Significant barriers that potential Tribal Nation REP Program participants face in accessing and leveraging Federal resources and how FEMA and other Federal agencies can assist in overcoming those barriers to make the Program more equitable; and
  • Any REP Program training and/or technical assistance that Tribal Nations are interested in receiving from FEMA.


Attached is the Tribal Leader notification letter and framing paper. An agenda will be available closer to the session at:
