Do1Thing Reminder for January 2014 : Make a Plan
Mitigation is any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life and property from hazards.
Hazard Mitigation Planning is the best action a local government can take to reduce risk and create a safer, more disaster-resilient community.
A Hazard Mitigation Plan approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) makes a community eligible for hazard mitigation grants, which are not otherwise available.
