Mitigation Resources

Mitigation is defined as taking an action now to reduce future risk.

For example, a mitigation action is tying your shoe to prevent you from tripping and hurting yourself; purchasing a flood insurance policy to help you recover faster from a flood event.

Why is Mitigation Important?

Mitigation breaks the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction and repeated damage. Hazard mitigation includes long-term, permanent solutions that reduce the impact of disaster in the future.

Who Can you talk to about Mitigation?

You can reach a mitigation specialist by phone on the FEMA Mitigation Helpline at:

833-FEMA-4-US (833-336-2487) from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mountain Time on Monday through Friday

or email us anytime at:
