Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Meeting

Have you experienced a loss from a natural hazard? Are you interested in learning more about risks our community faces from natural hazards and what can be done about it?
Hazard mitigation is defined as sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to life and property from natural hazards such as flooding, high winds, winter storms, and wildfires. Hazard mitigation planning is the process through which communities identify the risks they face and develop strategies to implement hazard mitigation measures.
Our community has a current hazard mitigation plan (HMP) that was completed in 2016 along with the other municipalities in Cumberland County. An update of this hazard mitigation plan is underway to meet federal requirements and help substantially reduce the risk of injury, death, property loss, and economic disruption from natural disasters.
The participation of concerned citizens will be important to the success of the hazard mitigation plan update. Hazard mitigation is most effective when local governments work with residents, property owners, and business interests to identify and understand risks and focus public and private resources on realistic solutions to problems.
For more information, please visit the Cumberland County 2021 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Update project website.
