Communities affected by a disaster, such as those recently hit by Superstorm Sandy, should seize the opportunity to rebuild in better, safer, and smarter ways. The Natural Hazard Mitigation Association (NHMA) has issued a paper entitled “Build Back Safer & Smarter” with nine steps local leaders, businesses, and homeowners can follow as they recover. The four page paper and resources and links to help implement the nine steps are available at http://recovery.stormsmart.org.

NHMA will be presenting a one-hour webinar on the nine step process on Friday, February 22. The presenter will be French Wetmore, CFM, consultant in floodplain management and hazard mitigation.

The webinar is open to all at no cost. However, there are a limited number of spaces, so registrations are required. Please email nathazma@gmail.com with any questions or to register. Participants will receive one continuing education credit (CEC) toward their Certified Floodplain Manager status.

Silver Jackets Webinar: Fostering Co-Mentoring Across Resilient Communities through the Natural Hazard Mitigation Association’s Resilient Neighbors Network

In early 2012, the Natural Hazard Mitigation Association launched a special program named Resilient Neighbors Network (RNN) to link together grassroots communities that are working to become safer, disaster-resilient, and sustainable.  NHMA has been working with ten pilot communities around the USA to create a peer-to-peer sharing network in order to enable grassroots communities to work together to strengthen and expand local hazard-mitigation programs.  Stay current on the RNN initiative by participating in the upcoming webinar for Silver Jackets teams and other state/federal flood risk groups.  Please extend this invitation to these partners. The webinar will be held Friday, February 1, 2013, at 1:00 pm EDT and jointly presented by NHMA and USACE.

The webinar will begin with an overview of the RNN initiative provided by Alessandra Jerolleman and then showcase the efforts of two of these communities.  Tim Trautman from Charlotte-Mecklenburg will share information on his community’s Risk Assessment and Risk Reduction Plan that uses flood models and customized Risk MAP data sets, along with local data, to evaluate risks and make mitigation decisions.  Tim Lovell from Tulsa will share information on Tulsa Partners, a nonprofit organization that grew out Tulsa’s successful stormwater management, Project Impact and Citizen Corps programs. He will discuss Tulsa’s current collaborative endeavors, including a new project with the Oklahoma Silver Jackets program.

For the audio conference, call (877) 336-1839, and key in 5884527 for the access code.  To access the web meeting use https://www.webmeeting.att.com with (877) 336-1839 for the meeting number and 5884527 for code.

Join NHMA for an Informational Webinar on Hazard Mitigation Planning
NHMA’s Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee invites you to join us for an informational webinar on hazard mitigation planning on Friday, January 25, 2013 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM EST.

This webinar is being offered as a follow up to NHMA’s recently released white paper titled “How to Improve Local Hazard Mitigation Planning.” The objective of this paper was to document common challenges and to make several key recommendations for improving local hazard mitigation planning nationwide. It was prepared by NHMA’s Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee and is based on the contributions of many individuals who participated in monthly committee meetings and other discussions throughout 2012.

The webinar will feature a brief overview of the white paper by Erin Capps, co-chair of the Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee, as well as opportunities for other key contributors to further expand on their observations or recommendations included in the paper. Following the presentation, our moderator, Darrin Punchard, will open the webinar to all participants to share their own thoughts, questions or ideas on the subject of improving local hazard mitigation planning.

We look forward to your response, and hope that you’ll be able to join us on January 25th. If you cannot attend, a recording of this webinar will be made available on the NHMA website following the event.
