Project Purpose

The Twin Platte Natural Resources District (NRD), in collaboration with JEO Consulting Group, is in the process of updating their 2016 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). A hazard mtigiation plan is a community-guided document that identifies vulnerability to hazards and mitigation projects to reduce or eliminate this vulnerability. FEMA requires that an HMP be updated and approved within a five year period. Having an approved and updated plan enables your community to be stronger and more resilient by:

  1. Reducing your community’s risk and potential impacts from hazards and disasters such as: tornadoes, flooding, drought, hail, severe winter storms, agricultural plant and animal diseases, wildfire, chemical spills, etc.;
  2. Gaining eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grants, and
  3. Building partnerships within your community and across counties.

 

The planning area for the Twin Platte NRD HMP includes the counties of: Arthur, Keith, Lincoln, and McPherson. Members of the community , schools, NRD, fire districts, 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 is funded by a FEMA planning grant. The cost is shared 75% through federal funding and 25% through a local match. For this plan updated, the NRD, Arthur County, Keith County, Lincoln County, and McPHerson County are providing the 25% local match.
