Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Best practices are activities that support the mitigation mission, which includes creating safer communities by reducing loss of life and property, enabling individuals to recover more rapidly from floods and other disasters and lessening the financial impact of disasters on the nation. Mitigation measures are being collected and told as best practices stories by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Texas Governor's Division of Emergency Management (GDEM).
