Family Assistance Foundation

ATIA is now a partner of the Family Assistance Foundation (FAF). The Family Assistance Foundation’s mission is to support and improve business and industry responses to emergencies and disasters. ATIA members can now access their network to coordinate and mobilize resources during a crisis.

Additionally, ATIA members now have access to training programs provided by FAF. This will allow us to grow the number of responders in Alaska should a crisis or emergency situation arise.


There are currently no trainings scheduled.  Please check back.

“I had a guest suffer the loss of her husband while traveling in rural Alaska. This meant she would be alone in Anchorage trying to make arrangements while grieving and in shock and being miles from her family. These types of situations are a reality to some of our Alaska visitors. I am so relieved and pleased that we now have the resources of the Family Assistance Foundation available to us through ATIA. Especially for those of us offering Alaskan Experiences in rural Alaska, we now have peace of mind knowing we have a network of trained industry professionals to ensure our guests are taken care of in difficult times.”
