The City of Jacksonville is always looking for ways to protect our community.
One of the biggest ways is through a Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS).
Mitigation (according to FEMA) is defined as…
“The effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disaster and other hazards.“
For mitigation to be effective, you need to take action now—before the next disaster.
The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) determined in a 2018 Interim Report that every $1 invested in protecting your home can save up to $6 in damage expenses.
Wind, flood, and storm surge are the 3 biggest hazards that are common to Florida. Below are some mitigation projects that you might need to address before the storm.
