Story County Hazard Mitigation Plan
Story County Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Revision Is Starting!
The Story County Hazard Mitigation plan must be reviewed and revised every five (5) years to meet Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requirements. The Story County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee will start the revision process for this plan in February, 2018 and they want your inputs. The planning is focused at the community or school district level and we encourage you to contact your city administration or school district to see how you can participate in hazard mitigation planning. With everyone's help we can reduce disaster risks for our schools and communities.
Please contact our office if you have questions about the hazard mitigation planning process or want to know who your representative is to the Story County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee.
Story County Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Story County Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan was prepared in response to the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA200). DMA 2000 requires local governments to prepare hazard mitigation plans in order to remain eligible to receive pre-disaster mitigation funds that are made available in the wake of federally-declared disasters.
Story County and all municipalities have developed and adopted this Multi-Jurisdictional Mitigation Plan. Following the adoption of this plan, it is the intent of the participating jurisdictions to continue work collaboratively to address data gaps and implement complementary and collective mitigation actions.
Communities which have adopted the plan are as follows: Ames, Cambridge, Collins, Colo, Gilbert, Huxley, Iowa State University, Kelley, Maxwell, McCallsburg, Nevada, Roland, Sheldahl, Slater, Story City, Zearing and unincorporated Story County.
