FEMA P-2181 Hurricane and Flood Mitigation Handbook for Public Facilities  


The Hurricane and Flood Mitigation Handbook for Public Facilities (referred to as the Handbook) presents 30 fact sheets in addition to this introductory fact sheet that provide technical guidance and recommendations for applying mitigation best practices. The fact sheets contain information aimed at improving public facilities and other infrastructure vulnerable to damage caused by flood and wind. This Handbook presents best practices developed from decades of hurricane and flood disaster evaluations. The work of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Mitigation Assessment Teams (MATs), which analyze damaged structures after a disaster to identify ways to increase resilience, enhances the material presented here.
