FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Plan For All Seasons: Hazard Mitigation Planning Helps to Prioritize   [open pdf - 26KB]

Alternate Title: A Plan for All Seasons: Hazard Mitigation Planning Helps to Prioritize

"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." [...] "Over an 18 month process starting in 2003 the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Tribe identified disaster risk, prioritized their probability, and documented planned projects to reduce damage. By following the guidance of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, the CPN created the first plan approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the State of Oklahoma." 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]
