Disaster Mitigation

Disaster Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. In order for mitigation to be effective one need to take action now—before the next disaster—to reduce human and financial consequences later (analyzing risk, reducing risk, and insuring against risk). It is important to know that disasters can happen at any time and at any place and if we are not prepared, consequences can be fatal. Effective mitigation requires that we all understand local risks, address the hard choices, and invest in long-term community well-being. Without mitigation actions, we jeopardize our safety, financial security and self-reliance. NEED HELP
