Pacific County and its respective municipalities have been working together the past 18 months to prepare the multi-jurisdictional all hazard mitigation plan. The purpose of this plan is to identify and assess our community's disaster risks and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks.
The goals of hazard mitigation planning include:
- Contribute to the development of a long-term, comprehensive mitigation program by funding measures designed to achieve the goals of the state hazard mitigation plan;
- Assist local governments in avoiding or lessening the impact of natural hazards through safer building practices and the improvement of existing structures and supporting infrastructure.
Citizens with questions or comments should contact the PCEMA office at (360) 875-9340 or (360) 642-9340.
