Natural Disaster Preparedness

American communities are experiencing a devastating increase in tornadoes, wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and other catastrophes.

There are numerous factors to consider when addressing the challenges of natural disaster preparedness, including the government’s role in providing relief, private market development, risk mitigation, resilience, and sustainability.

A major focus of these efforts includes supporting the Wildland Fire Mitigation and Management Commission’s recommendations to address the wildfire system holistically, with a goal of creating communities and landscapes that are resilient to wildfire as a natural and integral part of the nation’s future.

Securing Our Future will continue to advocate for smart policy reforms that improve our nation’s response to natural and man-made disasters, protecting our communities and reducing the burden on taxpayers nationwide.
