Wind Mitigation

Wind Mitigation

Mitigation is any activity taken to reduce the risk and vulnerability of people and infrastructure to damage and/or injury. 

Some examples of wind mitigation opportunities for a building include:

  • Increase wind resistance of windows with wood or metal shutters and impact resistant glazing
  • Increase wind resistance of house and garage doors with the addition of beams
  • Increase wind resistance of roof structures with hurricane clips and straps
  • Ensure mobile homes are anchored securely with tie downs. 

An excellent 20 page booklet with practical suggestions on wind mitigation is available for free download at www.floridadisaster.org.  From the left-side bullet menu on the home page, choose Mitigation.  Then, scroll down and look on the right-hand side of the screen for the Wind Mitigation Booklet
