Region VIII: Journeys - North Dakota's Trail Towards Disaster Resistance

Journeys is a publication highlighting successful mitigation efforts undertaken in the state of North Dakota.

In 2000, the North Dakota Division of Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency set out to find out how North Dakotans fared through disasters in their state and what lessons they learned along the way about creating a safer place to live. 

The resulting book, Journeys – North Dakota’s Trail Towards Disaster Resistance, was unveiled at North Dakota’s Emergency Management Conference on February 1, 2001.
