ABSTRACT

Guide to Expanding Mitigation: Making the Connection to Cemeteries   [open pdf - 12MB]

From the Document: "Cemeteries are important cultural resources. They are tangible connections to collective histories and physical memories of longlost loved ones. Emotional ties make it even more difficult when cemeteries are damaged in disasters. When cemeteries are not regularly maintained, the impacts from hazards like floods, tornadoes and wildfires can compound years of deterioration. [...] This 'Guide to Expanding Mitigation' provides recommendations for working with the public and private actors in the cemeteries sector to support hazard mitigation, especially in the planning process and project development. This guide is designed to help community officials initiate a conversation about mitigation investments that can help make cemeteries more resilient."
