Elmore County-East AL Regional Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan 2020

***The 30 day time period has expired for input.  Thank you for helping participate!***

It’s Time For A Plan Update!

 

Elmore County Emergency Management Agency is calling on our citizens to contribute to the 2020 Hazard Mitigation Plan update that is currently underway.

Every five years County EMA offices are required by FEMA to update the county’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. This allows the ability to receive Federal Grant Funding for things like Schools, County Government, Fire Departments, and Law Enforcement, etc.

The goal of the HMP update is to further protect property through the reduction of hazard vulnerability. During the course of this planning project, county and local leaders and the participating communities work together to identify risks, assess capabilities, and formulate a strategy to reduce the effects of hazards such as floods, tornadoes and severe storms on life and property.

This year to be more efficient, effective, and good stewards of our taxpayer’s dollars. We have elected to be part of the East Alabama Regional Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan along with the other counties in our division.

(Autauga, Bullock, Chambers, Chilton, Coosa, Elmore, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery, Russell, and Tallapoosa)

We ask that you read the plan below, and if you have any comments or suggestions please send them to our plan writers at Lee – Russell Council of Governments.

Thank you for your help in making Elmore County a safer and more resilient community to live and work!

For Public Review for 30 days:
