Hazard Mitigation Plan Review 2019

Mitigation Plan:

Background:The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) defines Mitigation as:

"The effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. Mitigation is taking action now—before the next disaster—to reduce human and financial consequences later (analyzing risk, reducing risk, insuring against risk). Effective mitigation requires that we all understand local risks, address the hard choices, and invest in long-term community well-being. Without mitigation actions, we jeopardize our safety, financial security, and self-reliance."

Wyandotte County's Plan:The Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for Wyandotte County documents the County's hazard mitigation planning process and identifies relevant hazards, vulnerabilities, and strategies that Wyandotte County and participating jurisdictions can use to decrease vulnerability and increase resiliency and sustainability. Over the course of 2018, Wyandotte County worked with local partners, Johnson County, Leavenworth County, and Kansas Division of Emergency Management to revise and update the Region L Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.
