Columbia County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
Columbia County EMA has completed the 2017 county hazard mitigation plan update. You will find information about the plan on this page.
The 2017 Columbia County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is now complete. To get to this point we have assessed our capabilities (Capability Assessment Survey Results) and completed a risk assessment . The risk assessment included: identifying hazards, profiling hazards, and assessing vulnerability (Evaluation of Identified Hazards and Risks Results) . Next, we started work on the mitigation strategy. This process included: Evaluating existing hazard mitigation goals, objectives, and action plans, Updating mitigation goals and objectives, Evaluating mitigation techniques (Hazard Mitigation Techniques and Ideas) for profiled hazards, and Developing the Mitigation Action Plan.
We have received approval from FEMA. The updated plan and municipal adoption templates have been forwarded to all municipalities so they may formally adopt the plan at their next public meeting.
If you have questions about the hazard mitigation plan update you may send an email to Jessica Shoup at firstname.lastname@example.org , or you may call (570)389-5734.
