2009 New York City Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan
Hazard mitigation planning is the first of the four phases of emergency management, followed by preparedness, response, and recovery. In March 2009, OEM released New York City's first FEMA-approved Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP), a guideline for protecting New York City from the effects of natural hazards. The HMP also made City agencies and select nonprofit organizations eligible to receive certain federal mitigation funding. The HMP was developed with the assistance of 39 governmental and nongovernmental stakeholders. The plan contains the following:
  • Geographic and demographic information about New York City
  • Profiles of the following natural hazards: Coastal erosion, coastal storms, drought, earthquakes, extreme temperatures, flooding, windstorms/tornadoes, and winter storms
  • Specific actions the City is taking or could take to protect people and property from the effects of natural hazards
