What is Hazard Mitigation?
Hazard mitigation planning is the process of determining how to reduce or eliminate the loss of life and property damage resulting from natural or man-made hazards.
There are four essential phases to mitigation planning:
- organize resources
- assess risks
- develop mitigation plan
- implement mitigation plan and monitor progress
- Increased understanding of the natural hazards the county faces
- Development of more sustainable and disaster-resistant communities
- Partnerships that support planning and mitigation efforts
- Reduced long-term impacts to structures and human health
- Eligibility for federal funds for pre-disaster mitigation planning (DMA 2000)
