Capitol Region Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Update (2014-2019)

CRNHMPUpdate-APA-Aug292014_001With funding provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), CRCOG developed a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan update for its thirty member municipalities. (The agency has since expanded its membership to include thirty-eight communities.) This plan builds on the existing Pre-Disaster Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan of 2008, and was intended to: identify natural hazards likely to affect the Capitol Region and its residents; assess vulnerabilities to these hazards; and set forth mitigation strategies that will reduce the loss of life and property, economic disruptions and the cost of post-disaster recovery for the region’s communities. Visit the CRCOG website to download the full plan update, appendices and individual municipal sections.
