ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Dauphin Island Hurricane Resistant Roofing   [open pdf - 26KB]

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: "Alabama's Dauphin Island has repeatedly experienced roofing failures during past hurricanes. Roof failures usually lead to further interior damage from subsequent rainfall. After Dauphin Island was incorporated in 1989, the town adopted recommendations for hurricane resistant roof construction." 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]
