ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Elevation of New Hotel Under Construction Protects Investment   [open pdf - 34KB]

Alternate Title: Elevation of New Hotel Protecting an Investment

This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "The merciless winds and rains of Hurricane Isabel created a 28 feet tidal surge up Chesapeake Bay, flooding many communities along the Eastern Shore of Maryland. [...] Mayor Donavan attributes success to following FEMA's 'directive' to construct the hotel four feet off the ground." 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]
