FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Northport Housing Authority Educates Residents on Preparedness   [open pdf - 43KB]

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. "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." This Best Practice story is about The Northport Housing Authority of Alabama and their efforts to provide housing and disaster information. "The Northport Housing Authority's mission is to provide decent and affordable housing in a safe and secure living environment for low- and moderate- income residents. The facility offers residents opportunities to participate in a multitude of community, educational, and recreational programs, including preparedness." 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]
