Counties in the United States are required by federal mandate to develop a multi-hazard mitigation plan in order to be eligible to receive federal mitigation funding. Laura Danielson will deliver a presentation on the local multi-hazard mitigation plan development process. This presentation will highlight how FEMA's hazard simulation software, Hazus-MH, can improve the quality of a community's hazard risk assessment and will discuss potential future improvements to the planning process to make communities more aware of the unique risks they face from droughts.
