This report by the Nat. Inst. of Bldg. Sciences presents the results of an independent study to assess the future savings from hazard mitigation activities. It shows that money spent on reducing the risk of natural hazards is a sound investment. On average, a dollar spent by FEMA on hazard mitigation (actions to reduce disaster losses) provides the nation about $4 in future benefits. In addition, FEMA grants to mitigate the effects of floods, hurricanes, tornados, & earthquakes between 1993 & 2003 are expected to save more than 200 lives & prevent almost 4,700 injuries over approximately 50 years. Recent disaster events painfully demonstrate the extent to which catastrophic damage affects all Americans & the Federal treasury. Illustrations.
