Integrating Manmade Hazards Into Mitigation Planning

Although mitigation planning traditionally focused on planning for natural hazards, events such as the September 11, 2001, attacks, the July 2001 Baltimore hazardous material train derailment suggested that the time had come to incorporate terrorism and technological hazards into all aspects of emergency management planning, not just preparedness and response. Scores of smaller-scale incidents and accidents reinforced the need for communities to reduce their vulnerability to future terrorist acts and technological disasters. How-To Guide # 7 (FEMA 386-7) assumes that a community is engaged in the mitigation planning process and serves as a resource to help the community expand the scope of its plan to address terrorism and technological hazards. ** FEMA provides state and local governments with preparedness program funding in the form of Non-Disaster Grants to enhance the capacity of state and local emergency responders to prevent, respond to, and recover from a weapons of mass destruction terrorism incident involving chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive devices and cyber attacks. For more information, please see the Preparedness Grants Program page at http://www.fema.gov/preparedness-non-disaster-grants.
