Hazard Mitigation

The threat of hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, snowstorms, wildfires, landslides and even earthquakes are very real in North Carolina. These forces of nature can result in the loss of life, and damage to housing, infrastructure, businesses and the environment. N.C. Emergency Management's Hazard Mitigation section can help citizens, state and local officials, and business leaders reduce the impacts of natural hazards on homes, businesses and communities.

Current hazard mitigation efforts include: 

  • the acquisition of more than 5,000 homes located in high hazard areas
  • the elevation of 800 flood-prone properties
  • providing assistance with updating of local hazard mitigation plans
  • the identification of business risk reduction strategies
  • promoting sound development and building practices outside of high hazard areas
