What Our Clients Say

This is an exemplary plan. It is easy-to-read, thorough, and concise. It is clear that thoughtful discussions occurred throughout the planning process; a tremendous amount of information is synthesized and summarized, and the planning team’s care and attention to detail are evident throughout the plan. Jurisdictional profiles are well-constructed and exemplify the intent of mitigation plans to reduce or eliminate vulnerabilities. The planning team should be proud of this effort.

Tri-Basin Hazard Mitigation Plan
Federal Emergency Management Agency

The Papio-Missouri NRD coordinated a multi-jurisdictional HMP to cover all communities within our boundary. JEO's Hazard Mitigation and Emergency Planning team worked diligently to connect with all communities to ensure that each of them had the necessary data and support to participate. JEO developed a training workshop to make sure that our communities understood the planning process and to gather community priorities prior to beginning the process. JEO went above and beyond the basic requirements of the project scope to accommodate communities and to make sure data was accurate and correct.
