Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan
Hazard Mitigation Plan
Definition: Hazard Mitigation is often defined as actions taken to reduce the effects of natural hazards on a place and its population. The 2023 HMP update entails a comprehensive re-evaluation of all parts of the plan, including hazard profiles, risk assessment, mitigation goals, strategies, and mitigation priorities.
Purpose: The purpose of a mitigation plan is to rationalize the process of determining appropriate hazard mitigation actions. This plan includes a detailed characterization of natural hazards impacting Anderson and Oconee Counties; a risk assessment that describes potential losses to physical assets, people and operations; a set of goals, objectives, strategies and actions that will guide mitigation activities, and a detailed plan for implementing and monitoring the plan.
Upcoming Meeting Dates
