ASFPM submits comments to FEMA on the Federal Mitigation Investment Strategy
Wednesday, June 8, 2016

ASFPM submitted comments to FEMA June 7 on the Federal Mitigation Investment Strategy 


FEMA will be developing the strategy using the guidelines in the Mitigation Investment Framework. ASFPM is pleased to see the four guiding principles in the Framework as noted here:  

 

ASFPM strongly supports the four guiding principles for mitigation identified in the FMIS as (1) Resilience and Sustainability, (2) Leadership and Locally Focused Implementation,(3) Engaged Partnerships and Inclusiveness, and (4) Risk-conscious Culture. We agree these principles lay the foundation for the mitigation mission and the execution of its core capabilities. The focus on local implementation is absolutely essential to success. Building that local capability is key and state capability must be built to support local efforts.
