Jersey County Mitigation Plan

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), “Hazard Mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters”. By developing its own Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, Jersey County has sought to mitigate damage before disaster strikes. The plan is a community-driven, living document that is updated every five years, and involves public input, risk assessment, and mitigation strategy. Having a mitigation plan is intended to increase awareness of hazards, risks, and vulnerabilities in order to reduce risks, focus resources, and communicate priorities to state and federal officials in the event of a disaster.
