FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Show Goes On at Kravis Center for the Performing Arts   [open pdf - 35KB]

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 Kravis Center for the Performing Arts features a unique and grand facade. In October of 2001, they purchased and installed the anchored film glass laminate system for the lobby windows, considered one of the products best suited for retrofitting existing fixed commercial tempered or plate glass windows. Then came the back-to-back hurricanes in 2004. The windows remained in place, without damage." 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]
