A. False

According to the FEMA IS-1 Emergency Manager: An Orientation to the Position, Int 3: Mitigation:


First, we said that most mitigation efforts are the primary responsibility of other departments of local government, not often the direct responsibility of the emergency manager.
Second, that does not mean that the emergency manager lacks a role in mitigation. On the contrary, the emergency manager has crucial roles in mitigation-that of motivator, coordinator, and monitor. We will examine these in more detail.
One of your roles in mitigation is to be the conscience of the community in matters related to emergencies. This translates into two major tasks.
You must be alert to the various types of hazards that threaten your community.
You must constantly monitor opportunities to reduce and eliminate the risks from these hazards.
You are the person with the broad scope of responsibility to help the community to do all it can to reduce potential harm to people and property. Remember, your job is to translate comprehensive emergency management into meaningful programs for your community.
