Beyond the Basics: Best Practices in Local Mitigation Planning 

Beyond the Basics is an easy to use, best practices guide designed to help local governments prepare a new, or update an existing, hazard mitigation plan.  It is based largely on FEMA’s Local Mitigation Planning Handbook (2013), but features additional examples of best practices drawn from local hazard mitigation plans in the U.S.

Beyond the Basics focuses on Nine Tasks to analyze and identify the best practices for local mitigation plans. These Nine Tasks will focus on six main Emergency Management concepts: Mitigation, Prevention, Protection, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.
