How predictable are flooding disasters? Is there anything we can do about them? Taking stock of pre-disaster conditions helps us to prepare ourselves, our businesses, and our communities for inundation and the resulting hardships. Beginning with definitions relating to hazards, risks, and preparedness, this program continues with a basic outline for risk assessment that is needed for mitigation planning. While we may not be able to prevent floods, we can recover from them more readily if we are aware of vulnerabilities before a disaster occurs, and plan our human-built environment accordingly. Two of the many approaches to resiliency, planning and construction as mitigation, will be the primary techniques addressed in this session.


At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
• Make informed decisions about reducing vulnerability to flooding events, whether for yourself, your clients, or your community
• Understand the balance between social forces and resources in limiting vulnerability to flooding disasters
• Identify resources to assist in mitigation planning that can increase personal and community resiliency
