ABSTRACT

Mitigation Assessment Team Program   [open html - 57KB]

From the webpage: "Two important components of hazard mitigation are: (1) Assessing the vulnerability of buildings, and (2) Increasing building resistance to damage caused by hazard events. This increased damage resistance is achieved through improvements in codes and standards, designs, methods, and materials used for new construction and post-disaster repair and recovery. The Mitigation Assessment Team (MAT) Program is an integral part of this process."
