FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Partners Provide Statewide Radio Alerts to Save Lives   [open pdf - 41KB]

"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." [...] "Officials at Missouri's State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) are confident that the citizens of Missouri are less vulnerable to disaster. Nearly all communities in the State now have access to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) severe weather radio alerts for notification of pending storms." 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]
