PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Clark County Emergency Management is inviting comment and input from residents, businesses, area organizations, and communities regarding the draft Clark County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan and any needed projects to reduce or eliminate natural hazard risks to residents, property, the local economy, and critical services.
Clark County is in the process of updating the County’s hazards mitigation plan, which is a pre-requisite for certain FEMA grant funding. Hazard mitigation actions are essential to creating a disaster-resilient community and breaking the disaster cycle of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage, thus saving taxpayer dollars. Example mitigation activities include not building in floodprone areas, constructing community safe rooms for tornados, and burying power lines in areas prone to outages.
A copy of the draft plan is available for review at the County Emergency Management office at the Clark County Courthouse or is available for download at http://www.wcwrpc.org/Documents.html.
Questions or comments on the draft plan should be directed to John Ross, Clark County Emergency Management, no later than October 31, 2020, at 715-743-5100 or email@example.com.
