Resources

Below are a number of documents and webistes that should be useful for local risk assessment and mitigation.

Documents

Sample Adoption Document for Hazard Mitigation Plans
This document is a sample of the documentation that is needed to officially adopt a local Hazard Mitigation Plan once it has been approved by FEMA. This exact language is not required, but many jurisdictions choose to use it.

Repetitive Loss Property Information Request
Curious about the repetitive loss properties in your community? Need this information for your local plan update? Just fill out this simple form letter and send it in to us and we'll get you the information you need.

NCEM Earthquake Risk and Mitigation Presentation
This presentation was prepared by NCEM's Hazard Mitigation Branch and contains information on the risk posed to North Carolina by earthquakes and outlines the benefits of non structural mitigation.

Landslide Magnitude Information
This spreadsheet includes information on some of the major historical landslides that have occurred in western North Carolina. Perhaps most importantly, it provides data concerning the volume of debris produced by these events which can be used to estimate the likely magnitude of future events in the state.

Summary of the Mitigation Program
This flyer summarizes the basics of the Mitigation program at NCEM, including the major grant programs and eligible activities.

Standard Operating Procedures
This document explains the Standard Operating Procedures that will be followed by the Mitigation Branch when reviewing, implementing and closing out mitigation projects or plans.
