FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Dauphin Island NFIP Compliance   [open pdf - 27KB]

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: "Dauphin Island is threatened by periodic flooding and has suffered substantial damage and losses from previous floods. As a result, the town has implemented a flood damage prevention ordinance to reduce the risk to lives and property. The ordinance is in compliance with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)." 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]
