JACKSON, Miss. – Rebuilding or repairing property damaged from the recent severe storms? Residents in the Madison area can get advice on building safer and smarter from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Mitigation specialists from FEMA will be at Home Depot in Madison to offer information on rebuilding after a disaster. The advisers can answer questions about protecting homes from future disaster-related damage and offer tips to build hazard-resistant homes.
FEMA officials estimate that every dollar spent on mitigation saves almost four dollars if another disaster hits.
FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
