As defined by the FEMA, mitigation is the cornerstone of emergency management. It's the ongoing effort to lessen the impact disasters have on people's lives and property through damage prevention. The Disaster Mitigation Act (DMA) of 2000 requires all states, counties and communities to have an approved Mitigation Plan in place in order to receive disaster funds whether from a tornado, flood or terrorist event. The DMA of 2000: "reinforces the importance of mitigation planning in both pre and post-disaster situations, and emphasizes planning for disasters before they occur." The Ramsey County All-Hazard Mitigation Plan was approved by the FEMA. A public version of the plan is available for review: Ramsey County All-Hazard Mitigation Plan (pdf - 10MB).
