  • Multi-Hazard Mitigation and Design Concepts: Wind, Flood, and Earthquake Training Videos

    Go to Resource
    Educating disaster workforces and the people who live in at-risk communities about natural hazards and the ways to mitigate risk is an important part of the FEMA mission. FEMA P-940CD presents three videos based on webinars abridged from the FEMA training course E312, Fundamentals of Building Science – Multi-Hazard Mitigation and Design Concepts. Each video explains the hazard (earthquake, wind, and flood) and the hazard-related damage, and provides users with some common sense tools to assist with specific mitigation work. The earthquake video includes an introduction illustrated by a recent earthquake event, a discussion of the hazards that can arise from seismic events, the types of earthquake damage commonly seen in the building environment, and seismic design basics. The earthquake video also discusses how buildings resist earthquakes and the seismic design process for new and existing construction.

    Environmental Assessment for Prattsville Fire District Facility Replacement, Town of Prattsville, Greene County, New York (June 2014).///The Prattsville Fire District facility located at 14563 Main Street in the hamlet of Prattsville experienced flooding on the first floor as a result of Hurricane Irene. The storm incident occurred August 26 to September 5, 2011, and was declared a major disaster on August 31, 2011 (FEMA 4020-DR-NY), and subsequently amended. The facility is located in the 100-year floodplain. The building has been stabilized and the Subgrantee continues to utilize the facility for firehouse operations and as a community meeting space as a temporary measure until a permanent plan for full restoration of functions can be implemented. The purpose of the proposed project is to restore a critical facility to the community, returning emergency services as well as providing a community shelter for future disasters. The need for the project is to return emergency services to full capacity for the affected community due to the storm damage and loss of use of the original facility during Hurricane Irene. The environmental analysis is conducted in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and its implementing regulations at 40 CFR Parts 1500-1508 and FEMA’s regulations at 44 CFR Part 10./This EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch.
