FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Clinics Guests High, Dry During Katrina   [open pdf - 36KB]

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The FEMA Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for future disasters. "When Ocean Springs, Mississippi veterinarian Dr. Mabry Allison decided to expand his clinic, he wanted the facility to be a safe haven for pets during extreme weather. When Hurricane Katrina struck the Mississippi Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005, the expanded facility got a torture test. The clinic's steel building and its guests came through with no fur flying." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
