FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: University of New Hampshires Complex Research Center   [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: "On September 29, 1999, the Complex Systems Research Center (CSRC), a branch of the University of New Hampshire, signed a pilot agreement with FEMA under the Cooperating Technical Communities (now Cooperating Technical Partners [CTP]) initiative. The objective of the agreement was to convert effective Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for three New Hampshire communities into a digital format that conforms to FEMA's new Digital FIRM (DFIRM) specifications." 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]
