FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Mitigation Means Peace of Mind for Perdido Key Family   [open pdf - 40KB]

Alternate Title: Mitigation Meant Peace of Mind Perdido Key

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: "Hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Ivan all hit the home of Harry and Sheila Palmer of Escambia, Florida. Unlike most worried islanders, the Palmers knew that their house was built to code when it was completed in August 2003. 'We returned two days after the storm. Our home was dry and intact, and the generator was still on.'" 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]
