The Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan was recognized by FEMA as officially approved on September 2, 2020. This plan is updated on a five-year cycle and establishes regional and local hazard mitigation goals and strategies.  By being proactive and putting mitigation measures into place, risk to life and property can be reduced, or possibly eliminated, thus creating a more safe and resilient community.  As part of the planning process community resources/facilities were inventoried, hazards were identified and analyzed, and mitigation actions were determined to help offset adverse effects from disasters and other harmful events.  Input was collected from the public, safety officials, representatives from local governments, and other community stakeholders.
