Planning & Disaster Resilience

We work with county and state agencies to develop compressive plans that help reduce the impacts of disasters on people, property, the economy and the environment.

Martin, Chock & Carden has authored FEMA-approved Multi-Hazard Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plans, and Emergency Operations Plans that are compliant with NIMS and HSPD-5.

  • Hazard Mitigation: Mitigation planning identifies and quantifies risks associated with natural and technological hazards and establishes projects to reduce the vulnerability of a given community to these hazards.


  • Emergency Response Planning: We aid in the enhancement and development of emergency response plans and procedures for natural disasters and technological hazards.
  • HAZUS-MH /Risk & Vulnerability Assessment Tools: Martin, Chock & Carden has more experience with the application of HAZUS MH for Hawaii conditions than any other private or public entity, having over 18 years of experience in its use and improvement of the HAZUS dataset for Hawaii.


  • Benefit Cost Analysis: This risk-based analysis is required for any mitigation project grant application per the requirement of 44 CFP § 201.6 (c)(3).  All mitigation actions must be prioritized according to a cost-benefit analysis, with a focus on how effective the actions are expected to be with respect to their cost.
