Mitigation Success Stories
Alachua County has been successful in completing some mitigation projects funded by FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. These included storm shuttering four of Alachua County Fire Rescue Stations and its Headquarters to withstand higher winds and acquiring and demolishing of a home in Gainesville (Red Lobster Basin) that faced repeated flooding and suffered severe mold damage. These are just a few examples of mitigation projects where investments made now can reduce and mitigate further damages and costs in the future.
