Meetings Scheduled to Introduce Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan

8:07 PM · Jan 2, 2020

(Civil Defense) The County of Hawai‘i’s Civil Defense Agency is holding a series of public meetings islandwide in January 2020 to introduce the results of the Risk Assessment conducted for the County’s Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan update to the community. These meetings will provide an opportunity to the public to share their views on risk and suggestions to help fine-tune this important plan. The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is the County’s hazard and risk assessment for natural disasters. The plan will include proposed projects to mitigate potential loss of life and property. The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan is required to be eligible for FEMA funds. That plan must be updated every five years. The Plan is closely related to and should influence the County’s General Plan and the Emergency Operations Plan.
