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.
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

We had initially thought we would be able to assess the damage and work with FEMA and our insurance carrier's adjusters by ourselves. It quickly became evident that we were going to need help. We realized we did not have the personnel, time or expertise it was going to take to deal with complex governmental regulations and equally complex insurance and adjusting issues, especially when it was taking all the resources we had just to get essential county services up and running again...your organization really came to the rescue. You delivered what you promised, and that counts for everything down here in South East Texas.
...During our time together, Jake displayed great communication skills in what was required for submission to FEMA as well as providing timely, accurate and professional service. When Jake was first assigned to St. John's, I was immediately impressed with his technical skills as well as his vast knowledge in disaster recovery... Jake was a pleasure to work with because of his amazingly positive attitude and eagerness to stick tightly to deadlines which provided St. John's with a timely resolution and recovery of expenses... I am absolutely confident that Jake and his team would be a great fit for any future disaster recovery assignments.

When Hurricane Katrina struck, bringing with it widespread flooding and damage, the City of Slidell took the brunt of the storm.

Unfortunately for Slidell, the nation first focused on the recovery of New Orleans. The City of Slidell didn't begin its recovery operations under Adjusters International had been hired, bringing the expertise required to turn the recovery process around.
