Fast Mitigation

In FEMA for every $1 spent on Mitigation the Government saves over $4 on the next disaster. Lots of money gets wasted due to lack of Mitigation. In the past Hazard Mitigation was not done because someone did not know how to do it or it took too much time. So I wrote a program called “Fast Mitigation”. Now Hazard Mitigation can be done in minutes and not hours or in some cases not at all. Not only does it save on thousands in payroll but millions in damages. When we in FEMA don’t have to keep coming back to help repair the same sites over and over, then we all win.
