This 4-part webinar series focuses on the phases of emergency management: Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.
Utilizing an all-hazards approach helps organizations be flexible and focus on capabilities that are critical to preparedness for a full spectrum of emergencies or disasters. As severe weather season approaches, it is important to recognize that each type of hazard has unique characteristics, yet common elements. Rather than managing planning initiatives for a multitude of threat scenarios, the all-hazards approach can simplify and optimize your planning and preparedness.
Mitigation actions reduce or eliminate the loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disaster and emergencies. As an ongoing process throughout the incident lifecycle, it remains the foundation and long-term strategy to create safe and resilient communities.
Join us as we discuss various mitigation techniques and common mitigation actions, including:
- Understanding local risks at the community level
- Ways to provide outreach, engagement, and equity
- Protecting the whole community
- Expanding community engagement
