Project

The City of Beatrice is in the process of updating their Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) with the assistance of JEO Consulting Group. A hazard mitigation plan is a community-guided document that identifies vulnerability to hazards and mitigation projects to reduce or eliminate this vulnerability. Having an approved and updated plan enables your community to be stronger and more resilient by:

  1. Reducing your community’s risk and impacts from disasters,
  2. Gaining eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grants, and
  3. Building partnerships within your community.

Residents, schools, fire departments, hospitals, and other jurisdictions within the community are invited to participate in this process by attending meetings and providing information for the plan.
