Hazard Mitigation Planning

Planning for natural disasters can reduce loss of life, injuries, and property damage. Hazard Mitigation Plans identify critical facilities and areas of concern throughout a municipality, analyze potential natural hazards and risks to these facilities, and prioritize mitigation measures to address the hazards. Municipalities must update their Hazard Mitigation Plans every five years in order to maintain eligibility for federal mitigation grants.

Potential natural hazards in the NRPC region include drought, earthquake, extreme temperatures, flooding, fluvial erosion, hurricane, severe thunderstorm, severe winter weather, tornado, and wildfire.

NRPC is currently working with Brookline, Pelham, and Mason to update their Hazard Mitigation Plans.
