Local Natural Hazard MitigationDo you wish to know how to better prepare your family for and understand the risks posed by natural hazards to our community?

Douglas County is currently working to update the FEMA-required Local Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan and welcomes your input at a virtual public presentation sharing the 2020 Risk Assessment on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 5:30 p.m.

Join in to learn more about local hazards and the potential for human and economic losses identified by the Risk Assessment while sharing your input. You will also get a sneak peek of key findings from the recent Local Natural Hazard Mitigation Opinion Poll.

This presentation is just one opportunity for you to participate in the Local Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan update over the next few months. Your input along the way will make a huge difference in community resiliency during a disaster.

If you haven’t already responded to the opinion poll, please help us become better informed by completing the quick questionnaire regarding your concerns and your level of preparedness.

Whether new to Douglas County or a long-time resident, you know that severe weather, wildfires or floods can have a significant impact on our families and our communities. Please join in as we create this plan that will help reduce the County’s vulnerability to natural hazards – and thus reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property.
