Notice of Public Meetings 

The Virtual Public Meeting held on February 10, reviewed the Draft 2021 Hazard Mitigation Plan Update.  Click here to provide your comments on the Plan.

Douglas County and multiple local and regional government partners and stakeholders are engaged in the development of a Local Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan update. This plan will help us reduce the entire County’s vulnerability to natural hazards – and thus reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards. FEMA requires a Hazard Mitigation Plan to be updated every five years.

For additional information please contact Tim Johnson, Director of the Office of Emergency Management, [email protected] or 303-660-7589.


The goal of the Plan is to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards by identifying and implementing cost-effective mitigation actions. The Risk Assessment provides a factual basis for activities proposed in the strategy portion of a Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Risk Assessment identifies hazards and their occurrence within the planning area; compares the risk of exposure to an established inventory of assets; and provides an estimate of potential human and economic losses based on the vulnerability of people, buildings, and infrastructure.
