Input Sought on Hazard Mitigation Plan

The St. Mary’s County Department of Emergency Services is seeking public input on its Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The Hazard Mitigation Plan outlines actions that can be taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and their property from natural hazards. It is an effective tool in identifying risks from and vulnerabilities to natural hazards, allowing communities to take action to protect their people and infrastructure before disasters occur.

These plans are required as a condition for receiving federal mitigation grant funding for projects. The plan is updated every five years.

The St. Mary’s County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee, acting in an advisory capacity to the county commissioners, is overseeing the plan update.
