FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: KnoWhat2Do: A Regional Public Education Program   [open pdf - 43KB]

Alternate Title: KnoWhat2Do A Regional Public Education Program

"The FEMA Best Practices Portfolio consists of mitigation stories submitted by individuals and communities that describe measures they have taken to reduce the loss of life and property from disasters. These Best Practices are meant to provide ideas and concepts about reducing losses and to encourage others to evaluate their own risk and consider mitigation as a long-term solution to reducing that risk." [...] "When it comes to disaster preparedness, residents in North Central Texas have access to a wealth of information. As a result, citizens in North Central Texas will 'KnoWhat2Do' in the event of a wide-scale disaster or crisis situation. 'KnoWhat2Do' is a public education and outreach campaign, which is presently in Phase II of development." 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]
