Preparedness Bureau Mitigation

OVERVIEW

The Mitigation Unit coordinates and administers statewide floodplain management, hazard mitigation planning and project programs. Personnel in the Mitigation Unit can assist with the identification and promotion of structural and non-structural mitigation practices in an effort to reduce the short and long-term adverse impacts of natural hazard events. Unit personnel provide technical assistance throughout the entire mitigation project life from assisting with the identification of viable projects that will alleviate future damages, through providing oversight of the development of a project application ensuring compliance with program policy and professional design standards, to conducting site visits during construction to ensure all approved project plans are being followed through a final project inspection.
