EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

MITIGATION

In emergency management, mitigation is synonymous with prevention. The intent of mitigation activities is to prevent or minimize the effects of an emergency. Communities undertake mitigation actively through zoning and planning and land use development and regulation. Mitigation allows a community to assume a given risk -- such as flooding -- and take necessary precautions prior to an event to limit damage and exposure.
