  • Cheaper Flood Insurance; 5 Ways to Lower the Cost of Your Flood Insurance Premium

  • Earthquake Mitigation for Hospitals

    This PowerPoint presentation is based on FEMA 396, Incremental Seismic Rehabilitation of Hospital Buildings: Providing Protection to People and Buildings. Recognizing that seismic mitigation can be expensive and disruptive, the purpose of this workshop is to introduce you to an innovative approach to seismic mitigation called “incremental seismic rehabilitation.” The approach essentially identifies systematic “opportunities” to conduct mitigation activities. Students are introduced to earthquake hazards in health care settings and learn about methods that can be used to analyze and reduce risks of damage in hospitals and other medical buildings. By implementing sound, cost-effective mitigation measures, health care facilities can reduce or eliminate seismic risks and ensure that, in the event of an earthquake, they can remain in operation to serve their communities.
  • Factsheet Summary: Revision to Figure D.2.8-3, Wave Runup Guidance for Vertical Wall, From Shore Protectional Manual (USACE, 1984)

  • Draft Environmental Assessment Village of Ruidoso Lincoln County, New Mexico October 2015

    Draft Environmental Assessment Village of Ruidoso Lincoln County, New Mexico October 2015

    The United States (US) Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is proposing to support the Village of Ruidoso (Village or Applicant) for a project in Ruidoso, Lincoln County, New Mexico. On July 27, 2008, the remnants of Hurricane Dolly passed through the Ruidoso, New Mexico area. Ruidoso and the surrounding areas received 2.46 inches (in.) of precipitation with some reports of up to 9 in., which resulted in heavy flooding within the Rio Ruidoso basin. Subsequently, a Presidential Disaster Declaration, FEMA‐1783‐DR‐NM, was signed on August 14, 2008 for damage that occurred as a result from severe storms and flooding.

    This Draft 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. I Part 10.

  • FEMA Mitigation Dam Task Force Strategic White Paper on Dam Risk

    From October 1-5, 2015, heavy rainfall over parts of South Carolina resulted in the failure of 31 state regulated dams, one federal dam, two sections of the levee adjacent to the Columbia Canal, and many unregulated dams. A Dam Task Force was deployed by FEMA Mitigation in support of recovery efforts. The group was tasked to assess the dams and provide their expertise and insights to the State of South Carolina, FEMA HQ, FEMA Region IV, and Joint Field Office (JFO) leadership.

    JFO operations during a disaster rarely involve strategic and widespread issues regarding dams. As such, there are many dam-related lessons that can be learned from this disaster. There is an opportunity to document these failures and provide recommendations to inform and enhance recovery efforts in South Carolina and dam risk management activities in other states.

    This report is limited in scope and provides the context by which risks related to dams and dam failure are managed in South Carolina, with some implications nationwide.
