Hazard Mitigation Planning
What is hazard mitigation planning?
No region is immune to natural hazards caused by geographic, climate, or weather-related events. The natural hazard mitigation planning process involves collaborating with regional stakeholders such as Emergency Management Agencies, public health facilities, hospitals, and assessors to effectively plan for a natural disaster before it happens. In the Tri-County area, that requires planning for tornadoes, floods, winter storms, and other such incidents.
A hazard mitigation plan is the result of a planning process that identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the risk and future losses resulting from hazard events. The hazard mitigation plan will address a comprehensive list of hazards likely to impact the Tri-County Region.

TCRPC has produced two previous hazard mitigation plan documents, in 2004 and an update in 2010. Both documents were produced in partnership with Dewberry.
