Preparedness Bureau Mitigation

OVERVIEW

The Mitigation Unit coordinates and administers statewide floodplain management and hazard mitigation programs, including both the planning of natural hazard mitigation projects and project implementation.

Personnel in the Mitigation Unit:

  • Assist with the identification and promotion of both structural and non-structural mitigation practices
  • Provide technical assistance during both the application process and the life of mitigation projects
  • Ensure compliance with program regulations and professional design standards
  • Conduct site visits during implementation
