HAZARD MITIGATION PLANNING

Hazard Mitigation Planning

What is a Hazard Mitigation Plan and Why Prepare One?
Planning for natural disasters can reduce loss of life, injuries, and property daice_stormmage. Hazard Mitigation Plans identify critical facilities and areas of concern throughout a municipality, analyze potential natural hazards and risks to these facilities, and prioritize mitigation measures to address the hazards. Municipalities are required to update their Hazard Mitigation Plans every five years in order to maintain eligibility for federal mitigation grants.

Potential natural hazards in the NRPC region include drought, earthquake, extreme temperatures, flooding, severe wind, lightening, severe winter weather, tornado, wildfire, solar storms & space weather, and infectious disease.
