Environmental and Historic Preservation

Environmental and Historic Preservation

There are more than 30 regulations in place to guide states and local governments about how to preserve and take care of the environment, historical properties, and cultural treasures. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is so committed to this task it will also provide jurisdictions with experts in environmental and historical preservation (EHP) as resources. In short, the overriding goals for these policies and regulations are:

  • Use the environment but don’t degrade or hurt it;
  • Preserve historic, cultural, and natural parts of our national heritage and maintain a diverse environment;
  • Balance using resources with developing and sustaining them;
  • Improve renewable resources and maximize recycling of depletable ones.

It is essential to understand the scope of the situation before work begins. Hagerty has experience in all phases of EHP and works closely with architects, engineers, environmentalists and other professionals.

Don’t turn your jurisdiction’s cultural and historical treasures over to novices eager to wipe the slate clean. Reach out for assistance from people who know how to think long-term. Reach for Hagerty.
