Let’s Mitigate Montana

Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. Effective mitigation requires that we all understand local risks, address the hard choices, and invest in long-term community well-being.

  • Disasters can happen at anytime and anyplace; their human and financial consequences are hard to predict.
  • The number of disasters each year is increasing.
  • FEMA's mitigation programs may help to reduce the impact of events.
