Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS)
Miami-Dade County, in fact, all of South Florida, is vulnerable to disasters of all types affecting every part of our community; no one is immune. We’ve suffered hurricanes, tornadoes, severe flooding, lightening, wildfires, plane crashes, hard freezes, droughts, citrus canker, mass migration and more. For more information or to submit a project for the LMS Project list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local Mitigation Strategy Working Group
The Local Mitigation Strategy Working Group has created the Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS), which is updated semi-annually on June 30th and December 31st. The LMS Working Group is made up of representatives from Miami-Dade municipalities, county departments, state and federal agencies, schools, colleges and universities, hospitals, and private for profit and not-for-profit organizations.
A FEMA approved LMS document enables members of the working group to access available funding for mitigation such as, but not limited to, the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, Pre-Disaster Mitigation, Flood Mitigation Assistance, Severe Repetitive Loss, and Repetitive Flood Claims.
The latest published version of the Local Mitigation Strategy is available here for public scrutiny and commentary, divided into seven parts for easier download:
- Part 1: The Strategy (2.3 MB)
- Part 2: The Projects (1.4 MB)
- Part 3: The Funding
- Part 4: The Appendices (6 MB)
- Part 5: Meeting Minutes (1.5 MB)
- Part 6: Completed Projects (3 MB)
- Part 7: LMS Progress Report (2.4 MB)
