Region I: Mitigation - Risk Reduction Activities & Methods

Our Mitigation Division assists regional states and communities in taking steps to lessen the loss of lives and damages to property caused by disasters. This is done by taking action now —before the next disaster— in order to prevent hardship later. Mitigation efforts are proven to reduce financial impact and risks to people, animals, and buildings.
