Government pumps money into flood mitigation plan
After the 2011 flood, DAP was tasked by the federal government to work with other federal agencies to plan flood mitigation and preparation actions. But after the 2011 flooding, the department’s role changed and now the agency has focused primarily on building a flood mitigation plan, the department stated.
“This strategy is to create an understanding of how the community and environment is impacting 엠카지노the protection needs of the people and infrastructure at risk that’s required to meet the risk of future floods,” said David Boushey, a program executive for DAP. “DAP is using this knowledge and data to help local jurisdictions build out and maintain emergency preparedness strategies and to assist local communities and the state in developing plans to prevent, respond, and recover from these future floods.”
The DAP office created this video in August to explain the state’s new flood contingency plan.
The program’s mission is to work “like any normal state agency does with natural disasters,” and DAP has helped provide over $8.1 billion in federal funding to counties, towns, cities, states, tribal governments, and the states and ter포커 룰ritories to develop flood risk management strategies.
As a federal agency, DAP is authorized to do up to $25.5 million per year for its flood program. DAP plans to build its own flood contingency plan, as well as the flood risk management programs in response to specific natural disasters, in the coming years, Boushey said.
Boushey said DAP has “been working with community partners and partners with the private sector” to create this emergency flood planning tool. “This means the private sector can now bring their expertise to help with flood management strategies. We’re not going to start over and expect private industry to do it all over again, but it’s a way for government to help with its response to natural disasters. But it’s going to be funded through public a1 인샵nd private partnerships.”
A plan was released to the public on September 26, showing the federal government has agreed to the city’s request to pay for a study to determine whether DAP should develop a flood threat assessment tool in coordination with the city to determine the extent of the damage caused by the flood.
