Carbon County Emergency Management Agency in cooperation with Carbon County Office of Planning and Development will soon begin the process of updating the Carbon County Hazard Mitigation Plan.  This Plan serves as a blueprint for reducing property damage and saving lives from the effects of future natural and human-made disasters.  This Plan is also required in order for Carbon County and its municipalities to be eligible to receive certain types of state and federal disaster and mitigation funds after a disaster occurs.
