Local Mitigation Strategy

A Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) is a plan developed by the county to reduce and or eliminate the risks associated with natural and man-made hazards. These plans must be in accordance with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA 2000). DMA 2000 is a mechanism for collaboration between state and local entities that encourages pre-disaster planning, recognizes need for mitigation, and designates funding for projects through Federal grant opportunities. The Florida Division of Emergency Management Mitigation Planning Unit assists counties in the update and review process of the LMS. They serve as a resource for technical advice, knowledge of funding sources, and general information regarding hazard mitigation.
