Carbon County HMP Kick Off Meeting

Post date: Mar 2, 2015 6:21:18 PM

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.

A meeting will be held to kick-off the Local Hazard Mitigation Planning process on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 6:30 P.M. at the Carbon County Emergency Management Agency, Training Room, 1264 Emergency Lane, Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania 18240.

If you are unable to attend this meeting and still wish to participate in the planning process in order to ensure your community is eligible for applicable mitigation funding, please contact us. You will be provided with additional information regarding future meetings, draft documents for review, and other project milestones.
