Plan Goals

  1. Protect the public health, safety, and welfare by increasing public awareness of hazards and by encouraging collective and individual responsibility for mitigating hazard risks.
  2. Improve capabilities, coordination, and opportunities at local and regional levels to plan and implement hazard mitigation projects, programs, policies, and activities, including incorporation of lessons learned from previous events and exercises to prevent or lessen impacts from future hazards.
  3. Improve data collection, projections, use, and sharing to improve data-driven decision making and future outcomes.
  4. Protect the most vulnerable populations, buildings, infrastructure, and critical facilities through the implementation of cost-effective and technically feasible mitigation actions.
