Preparedness Mitigation

FEMA’s Mitigation program is designed to assist communities with funding, to implement natural hazard mitigation programs pre-disaster to reduce the overall risk to their population and infrastructure from future disasters. Through the program FEMA awards both planning and project grants and also provides opportunities to raise public awareness of the need to plan and prepare before disaster strikes, to reduce reliance on federal funding following disasters.

Mitigation Plans

mitigation plans

Tidal Basin works with states and individual jurisdictions to create Hazard Mitigation Plans which identify the potential hazards that present risks to life and property. We then recommend specific mitigation actions that can reduce the impact of a disaster event.

The hazard mitigation plan outlines the organization’s strategies and priorities for mitigating against the various potential natural hazards or man-made threats. The plan not only guides emergency managers, but also assists in the grant funding process.

How Tidal Basin Can Assist

  • Draft custom plans tailored to your organizations needs
  • Update and enhance existing plans
  • Mitigation strategy assessments and development
