Event Navigation

The art of good planning is about injecting long-term considerations into near term-actions. Communities that integrate hazard mitigation principles and factor in long-term risks into their existing plans stand to make their communities more resilient and less prone to disasters. Hear about approaches your community can embark upon to link risk with your community’s ongoing planning and vision.
