ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Safe Building Practice Protects Investment   [open pdf - 43KB]

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency 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." [...] "Steve and Pam McCumber are entrepreneurs living in Arkansas. Through various means of mitigation, including elevation, and the use of hurricane straps, the McCumbers were able to build a successful resort which has not been affected by weather disasters." 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]
