BOLDplanning is my first choice [for Hazard Mitigation Planning] because of their great customer service and expertise.
We utilized BOLDplanning with our current plan. When it was time for FEMA approval, the plan was approved with some minor adjustments that were taken care of during a conference call with FEMA. The planner was involved with us during the entire process, and I believe the open communication allowed our current plan to gain a quick FEMA approval.
By going through the planning process, we as a community were able to identify areas that mitigation would benefit by reducing the risk for when a disaster occurs.
