Hazard Mitigation Planning

Hazard Mitigation Planning


SEWRPC provides assistance to counties and local governments in the preparation and updating of hazard mitigation plans. These plans fulfill requirements set forth by the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs, Division of Emergency Management, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Through such planning, appropriate consideration is given to such hazards as flooding; lakeshore bluff and dam failure episodes; severe weather conditions, including wind storms, tornadoes, periods of extreme heat or cold, and winter storms; terrorism; civil disorder; urban fire or mass casualty; and hazardous material situations. SEWRPC is currently assisting Washington County in developing a hazard mitigation plan and Kenosha and Racine Counties in updating their hazard mitigation plans. SEWRPC recently assisted the City of Milwaukee in updating its hazard mitigation plan.
