The purpose of the LHMP is to identify local hazards, review and assess past disaster occurrences, estimate the probability of future occurrences, and set goals to mitigate potential risks (to reduce or eliminate long-term risk) to people and property from natural and man-made hazards.
Please review the LHMP and comment on anything you believe should be addressed in in the 2017 updated plan.
In support of the state’s efforts, the 2018 State Hazard Mitigation Plan (SHMP) public review draft is now available for feedback. This draft represents comprehensive and valuable input provided by State Hazard Mitigation Team members and stakeholders, and includes the following: updated risk assessment information for the state; disaster history and statistics; recent mitigation progress, success stories, and best practices; updated goals and objectives; updated strategies and actions; and other related content.
Feedback on the public review draft is due on or before Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Please note that this will be the last opportunity to provide feedback before the 2018 SHMP is submitted to FEMA for final review and approval.
