  • Integrating Disaster Data into Hazard Mitigation Planning

    Go to Resource

    Hazard mitigation is defined as sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to human life and property from hazards.

    Following a disaster, there is a great opportunity for stakeholders of all levels to collect a variety of data and information that can help to identify new, or further develop existing, hazard mitigation actions and strategies. This guide will discuss various opportunities to identify data and information that is collected following a disaster and then to
    integrate that information into local and state hazard mitigation and other planning processes. This guide may be used in conjunction with FEMA’s Local Mitigation Planning Handbook 2, which is the official guide for local governments to develop, update, and implement local mitigation plans.

    The intent of this guide is to draw from various existing guidance and operations documents and provide users with a clear picture of how the data and information that come out of a natural hazard disaster can be filtered back into the local hazard mitigation planning process to help improve local natural hazard risk reduction actions and strategies.
    This guide is intended for anyone interested in utilizing disaster data information to plan for and implement hazard mitigation activities. This document does not impose legally enforceable rights or obligations
    although it references regulations and agency practices

  • Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery: Next Generation

    Go to Resource

    Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery: Next Generation is designed to help communities improve their resiliency and provides how-to guidance for communities to start their mitigation planning and disaster-recovery planning processes.  The new report was produced by the American Planning Association (APA) through a cooperative agreement from FEMA, and is a follow-up edition to the popular Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery and Reconstruction (FEMA 421) report originally published in 1998.

    The Next Generation report takes into account changes in federal legislation as well as the increasing frequency and severity of disasters striking U.S. communities. FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate is featured as the Foreword author of the report, and he relays the importance of planning to limit the impact of disasters. He notes, “If a community is planning for the future, development and redevelopment must incorporate reduction of future risks.” The report provides resources to assist communities with their disaster recovery planning, including a model recovery ordinance for communities that want to enhance their disaster recovery planning before a disaster strikes and domestic and international case studies that share recovery lessons.

  • LLIS Grant Case Studies

    Go to Resource

    In 2014, FEMA completed a series of grant effectiveness case studies to demonstrate how states and urban areas across the country are using Federal homeland security grants to improve preparedness. FEMA partnered with stakeholders in various states to develop case studies for distribution to the whole community. FEMA chose these locations to account for a mix of homeland security non-disaster grant programs, to ensure geographical diversity, and to link grant investments with recent events.

  • LLIS Trend Analysis

    Go to Resource

    The Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS) team conducts research and analysis on core capabilities and emerging threats and hazards. The LLIS team analyzes various sources, including State Preparedness Reports and after-action reports from Federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies, and shares their findings through trend analysis documents. These documents are disseminated to help first responders, emergency managers, homeland security officials, and members of the whole community prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate natural disasters and other threat and hazard-related emergencies.
