BRAG Staff Updating Regional Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan
BRAG staff is currently working on updating the regional Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan. This planning process includes new natural hazards mapping and analysis to identify potential losses for each of the 42 jurisdictions in Box Elder, Cache, and Rich Counties. Cities, towns, and counties will also be creating mitigation strategies to reduce risk to life and property for their citizens, as well as infrastructure damage or loss during a natural hazard event. This update is being done to fulfill requirements for the Hazard Mitigation Act of 2000. Each local government that adopts a FEMA-approved plan will be eligible to apply for certain pre and post-disaster natural hazard mitigation grants.
Communities are encouraged to participate in this important planning process. If you are interested in being involved, please contact Zac Covington at 435.713.1423 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
