"Each day, natural disasters destroy our communities and affect the lives of our families, neighbors and friends. While we can't stop natural hazards, we can change the way America deals with disasters. Reducing the effects of natural disasters makes economic sense, and it is good public policy because it protects our citizens and our future. The collaboration, preparation and prevention found in Project Impact should be the way in which our nation, our states and our communities conduct their day-to-day business."
James L. Witt, Director, Federal Emergency Management Agency
