Project Description

Franklin, Furnas, Harlan, and Red Willow Counties (Quad Counties) are working with JEO Consulting Group to update the 2016 Quad Counties Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. A Hazard Mitigation Plan is a community-guided document that identifies both vulnerability to natural and man-made hazards, and mitigation measures to reduce or eliminate this vulnerability. Hazard mitigation plans are a requirement of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Having an approved and updated plan enables your jurisdiction to be stronger and ore resilient by:

  1. Reducing risk and impacts from disasters,
  2. Gaining eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grants, and
  3. Building partnership


Members of communities, schools, NRD, counties, fire departments, hospitals, and other jurisdictions within the four counties are invited to participate in this process by attending meetings and providing information for the plan.

 This hazard mitigation plan update was funded by a FEMA planning grant. The cost is shared 75% through federal funding and 25% through a local match. For this plan update, the Quad Counties are providing the 25% local match.

Round 1 Meetings

This planning process will include public meetings to provide an opportunity for participants and interested stakeholders to learn about the plan and provide input. These meetings will be hosted both as in-person meetings in communities across the planning area and as virtual Zoom meetings. All meetings will be facilitated by JEO staff. Participating jurisdictions must attend a meeting to meet FEMA requirements.

Round 1 meetings have already taken place for the planning area. If your jurisdiction was unable to make it to the Round 1 meetings but still wishes to participate, please contact Karl Dietrich at 402-742-7213 or kdietrich@jeo.com.

A recording of the Round 1 virtual meeting can be found here: https://vimeo.com/478666804/9760303981.
