Cover photo for the document: Mitigation Assessment Teams: Building Stronger and Safer

FEMA’s Mitigation Assessment Teams (MATs) conduct engineering analyses after major natural disasters to assess damage to government facilities, homes, businesses, and other structures, and to determine the causes of structural failures and successes. Based on a comprehensive analysis of data, the teams prepare recommendations regarding construction codes and standards, building design issues, and best practices that communities and the construction industry can use to reduce damages in future disasters. The program works in collaboration with State and local government, and draws on a wide range of technical expertise from the private sector.
