ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Planning Paves the Way to Community Resilience   [open pdf - 31KB]

"The residents of coastal Connecticut recognize the value of investing in disaster resistance. Nor'easters and hurricanes bring destructive erosion, storm surge, downed utilities and more. The communities know that 'failing to plan is planning to fail.' In recent years several public meetings have been held to plan, mitigate and adapt to climate change issues that could mean even greater challenges in the years ahead. Participants included town residents, businesses, appointed and elected officials from local, state and federal governments, municipal staff and others. They work together to anticipate change, plan for their future and seize every chance to take action to reduce their vulnerabilities."
