Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA)

Southern Illinois Carbondale (SIU) and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) partnered with The Polis Center and local community planners to facilitate the creation of pre-disaster mitigation plans for 17 counties in southern Illinois.  As part of this process the SIU-Polis team used Hazus-MH and other tools to prepare detailed risk assessments using local data.   Polis also assisted SIU in developing the capacity to continue supporting the planning process.
