The County Disaster Mitigation Plan was adopted by the County on February 24, 2009.
After a year and a half of work by the Disaster Mitigation Steering Committee, the 21 municipalities, the staff of the Department of Economic Development and Planning and the project consultant, Tetra Tech, Inc., a draft plan was submitted to and approved by the New York State Emergency Management Office (SEMO).
Once FEMA has approved the plan, each of the 21 county municipalities will get one complete hard copy of the entire plan. Every municipality will have to adopt the plan in order to apply for future Disaster Mitigation Grants.
A County Disaster Mitigation Planning Committee is responsible for documenting disaster or hazard events and evaluating the event's effects and losses, as well as submitting annual reports on how the overall plan is working. The Mitigation Planning Committee will also work with municipalities on grants applications and projects.
