The Hazard Mitigation Planning Process is a hands-on process for municipalities, counties, state governments, and private enterprises to reduce the impact of a disaster by identifying hazards and developing ways to decrease their effects. Risk assessments rate hazards with the most significant potential impact on a particular geographic area. Also, long-term prevention or protection steps are developed to lessen the effects of the hazard. This plan creates awareness of hazards, threats, and vulnerabilities within the community, paving a path forward for entities to prepare for local disasters.Learn More About Strategic Planning
