Task 4: Community Capability Review


Task 4 explains how the appraisal of current plans, programs, studies, and policies can be accomplished to further notify the mitigation activities that will be acknowledged via the planning process. Local capability can considerably vary from community to community for mitigation efforts. During the development of mitigation plans for multi-jurisdictions, communities with restricted capabilities may utilize the planning process as a resource to develop service agreements, mutual aid agreements, or cooperative agreements that increase their capacity to take on the mitigation initiatives.
