Broward County is No Stranger to Natural Disasters

Disaster Prevention

Natural disasters are often frightening and difficult for us to understand because we have no control over when and where they happen. What we can control is how prepared we are as a community and how local governments deal with the dangers that natural disasters bring. The intent of the Natural Disaster Component (NDC), as part of the Coastal Management Element (CME), is to: protect human life by limiting public expenditures in areas subject to destruction by natural disasters within the coastal area, maintain and implement a safe and effective emergency management program, and provide for orderly redevelopment in a post-disaster period.

We encourage public participation and would like to hear from you.​​​​
