Mitigation Framework: General

Successful Mitigation Starts with Risk Assessment

For a community to have a risk assessment that will allow them to understand the impacts and vulnerabilities within the community, they must account for the social factors that affect people's ability to respond to and recovery from an event. This goes beyond just thinking of the infrastructure and lifelines to a community. The makeup and resources of the people in neighborhoods is key in an assessment that allows you to plan for the entire community taking in to account the different needs, existing vulnerabilities, and special requirements.
