Integrating Hazard Mitigation

Published on

Hazard mitigation has increasingly become the responsibility of local decision makers who work with technical assistance providers to apply for federal funding. Understanding the disaster cycle: preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation; helps communities reduce risk from disaster. During this panel, the
importance of understanding the need to adopt both structural and non‐structural mitigation strategies will be covered.
Speakers: Jonathon Monken, Director, Illinois Emergency
Management Agency (IEMA); Rusty Tenton, State Hazard Mitigation
Office, Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA); Ron Davis, State Hazard Mitigation Office, Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA);
Foundation: Mary Ellen Chamberlin, President, RDA
Facilitator: Carrie McKillip, Community Development Educator,
University of Illinois Extension

  • Extension, through two separate programs, has been working with Henderson County, IL since July of 2008 in their long term recovery efforts. (show video). The video illustrates the situation, but also identified the programmatic aspects of IRN and CADS. Continuing to work with the County to implement the mitigation plan, as well as build local capacity.
  • Due to the rural nature of the county, leadership was stretched thin, simply dealing with immediate safety issues. The county was already economically depressed, so the flood aggravated an already difficult situation, and further eroded the population
  • In late July, when I first started going to Henderson County, the water was still standing in the fields.
  • While some losses were measurable, others were not. As can be seen by this chart, nearly 80% of the adverse transportation cost associate with FEMA 1771 were along US 34 in Henderson County.
  • As can be seen Here, Henderson County ranked second in the total amount of Federal Assistance Provided, while accounting for only a small fraction of the population
  • Any long term mitigation for Henderson County was delayed since they did not have a mitigation plan. For this reason, Extension worked with the county to quickly turn around a grant application for FEMA Funding, and actually facilitated the development of the plan.
  • During the planning process, we provided the historical weather data to the committee, and facilitated the discussion of risk assesment. We also looked and the Illinois Plan and shared how the state ranked the county for each natural Hazard. We also reviewed existing plans and pulled examples of mitigation goals from six differenct plans to share with the group as a starting point for the goal discussion.
  • These public meeting gave the community a chance to learn the process, submit ideas, and become engaged in the process.
  • Final Plan was submitted in late february, but FEMA Region 5 only has one person reviewing the plans, so it took a while to get approval pending adoption. Most jurisdictions adopted immediately, but last jusidiction in Henderson County adopted October 4, 2010. 100% adoption.
  • Keithsburg also flooded in 1993, but because of a substantial buyout project(80 homes), far fewer homes were flooded in 2008 flood. This is the kind of success that Henderson County, IL is hoping to achieve with the relocation of Gulfport (approximately 25 miles down river)
  • Transcript of "Integrating Hazard Mitigation"

    1. 1. How can Mitigation help us?<br />Mitigation is the on-going effort to lessen the impact disasters have on people and property from natural or man-made disasters.<br />
    2. 2. Use of Funding<br />$150 million in mitigation funds over the last 16 years<br />Almost 2 million dollars has been spent for plan development since 2004.<br />Over 3500 homes have been bought in Illinois<br />
    3. 3. Mitigation in Illinois<br />Illinois has been a national leader in mitigation since 1993. The programs success nationwide established Federal guidance that seeks to better define our nations vulnerabilities. Hence the birth and importance of Mitigation Planning. After 2004, any recipient of Mitigation Funds, would be required to have a Mitigation plan in place first.<br />
    4. 4. What does a Mitigation Plan do?<br />In simplest terms:<br /> 1. Identifies risks that face your community;<br /> 2. Analyzes ways to mitigate risks; <br /> 3. Prioritize your mitigation activities.<br />
    5. 5. History of Mitigation<br />November 29th, 1993: The Mitigation Directorate was established. This directorate shifted the FEMA mission to breaking the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.<br />October 30th, 2000: The President signed the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 into law. This act established a pre-disaster mitigation program and set requirements in place for post disaster mitigation funding. <br />March 2004: FEMA establishes guidance for approved mitigation plans.<br />November 1st, 2004: The DMA2K requirements for post disaster project funding required that after November 1st, 2004, an approved Mitigation plan must be in place before funds can be disbursed for projects.<br />July 1st 2008: Local mitigation planning guidance is re-written to include criteria for NFIP regulations as well as plan updates.<br />
