ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Louisiana State University Promotes Building Safer, Stronger, Smarter   [open pdf - 36KB]

"Twenty years ago, after leveling much of south Florida, Hurricane Andrew slammed into Louisiana. Although it caused widespread destruction, the hurricane had at least one positive effect. The 1992 disaster spurred Louisiana State University's Agricultural Center, known as the AgCenter, to expand its outreach and education program for residents - an effort that continues to evolve even now. At that time, staffers produced consumer and contractor guides, and conducted workshops and demonstrations on home elevation."
