  7. 7. FEMA Strategic Plan FY08-13   Promote development of national, consensus-based building codes and standards, and encourage their adoption by governmental entities.   Provide technical assistance and public education on building techniques for the rebuilding and recovery process to reduce the potential for future loss of life and property.   Promote use of most appropriate and cost-effective building materials and practices (based on the hazards present in an area) to help encourage future construction of disaster-resistant buildings.   Ensure integration of sound building designs, construction standards, and up-to-date risk information into recovery process to mitigate against future disaster losses.

  12. 12. FEMA Grant Programs   Why provide residential wind retrofit guidance?   Billions in damage continue to be observed after hurricane events   Large percentage of homes constructed prior to the adoption of the I-codes   Studies identified gaps in knowledge   Validates the need for new guidance   Less than 6% of all FEMA grant funding going to wind retrofitting   More than 75% of this funding has been used for non-residential and critical facilities From new Wind Retrofit Guide for Residential Buildings
  13. 13. Example Solution: Wind Retrofit Guide   State-of-the-art guide for wind retrofit   Readily available solutions   Holistic solutions vs. individual (incomplete) projects   Uniform application of theory   Community-wide risk reduction   Better guidance leads to   More cost-effective projects   Less risk to built environment
  14. 14. Expert guidance on applying Benefit Cost Analysis to Wind Retrofit Projects 22
  15. 15. FEMA Approach: Collaborative and Partnering
