ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Program Aimed at Combating the Storm   [open pdf - 2MB]

"A hurricane can leave a trail of devastation that includes loss of life and property. It can also have a major impact on the economy. Florida's Division of Emergency Management created the Hurricane Loss Mitigation Program in response to the damage Hurricane Andrew caused to Florida's insurance market in 1992. Its aim is to minimize some of the risks associated with a storm. The Florida Legislature initiated the Hurricane Catastrophe Trust Fund, which subsequently authorized the HLMP to encourage local partners to engage in best practices to reduce risk and losses."
