FEMA released brochure highlighting findings from the Losses Avoided Study completed after the 2013 flood event.
“We had a unique opportunity to analyze and quantify a wide spectrum of mitigation efforts in communities impacted by the event,” Matthew Buddie of FEMA Region VIII said. “Feel free to pass along the brochure to stakeholders you think might be interested, included any groups and organizations involved in mitigation. There is great information and I hope it will help communities (especially convincing elected officials) to consider adopting and enforcing higher standards than the minimum NFIP. There is a link to the actual report on the last page of the brochure.”
