FEMA Publication Highlights Mitigation Successes in Maine
March 7, 2008
The dictionary definition of "mitigation" is "measures taken in advance to reduce adverse impacts." FEMA refines that definition, to focus on "breaking the cycle of disaster damage reconstruction and repeated damage."
Now a new brochure focuses attention on how those definitions have been applied in the real world, in successful mitigation projects in Maine over the last several years.
The publication, produced by FEMA, Region One in partnership with MEMA and the Maine Floodplain Management Program, State Planning office, looks at four very different projects that demonstrate the practical and lasting value of mitigation measures.
