Pre-Disaster Mitigation Project

Contact Information

Scott Black
Program Development Manager

The pre-disaster mitigation project is a multi-year project funded by a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This project will identify the risks from natural hazards to our students, teachers, and school facilities, and develop a hazard mitigation plan for Washington State K-12 facilities. The analyses and final plan will increase our understanding of the risks posed to K-12 facilities from nine natural disasters, and lay the foundation for increasing the safety of Washington's 1.1 million students.
