    Event Description:
    Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. For mitigation to be effective you need to take action before the next disaster.  The goal of mitigation is to reduce human and financial consequences later (analyzing risk, reducing risk, and insuring against risk). It is important to know that disasters can happen at any time and any place and if we are not prepared, consequences can be fatal.
    1. Determine your risk.
    2. Plan & prepare.
    3. Protect – people & property.
    4. Case Study / Best Practices / Business Panel
