Why should we try to minimize hazards?

Natural and manmade disasters can cause injury, death, and property damage, and impact individuals, families, and the economy. Recovery can take public funding and attention away from other priorities. 

What is the County Hazard Mitigation Plan?

The County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan will identify and update information about the County’s hazard risks, such as earthquakes, storms, flooding, and landslides. The plan will also identify the people and facilities at risk and ways to prevent and minimize damage.

Why develop a Hazard Mitigation Plan?

To apply for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) assistance after a disaster, the County must have an approved mitigation plan. Plans must also be updated every five years to comply with Federal law. A plan also allows a community to apply for hazard mitigation project funding.
