Reduce Your Risk From Natural Disasters  (2.1MB )
Disaster Mitigation is any action or measure that either prevents that occurrence of a disaster or reduces the severity of its effects.

Hazard Mitigation Planning is an important aspect of a successful mitigation program. Hazard mitigation planning is a collaborative process whereby hazards affecting the community are identified, vulnerability to the hazards are assessed, and consensus reached on how to minimize or eliminate the effects of these hazards.

The Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) program provides technical and financial assistance to the State and local governments for cost-effective pre-disaster hazard mitigation activities that complement a comprehensive mitigation program, and reduce injuries, loss of life, and damage and destruction of property.

The Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) provides grants to the State and local governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures after a major disaster declaration. The purpose of the program is to reduce the loss of life and property due to natural disasters and to enable mitigation measures to be implemented during the immediate recovery from a disaster.
