Hazard Mitigation Planning

Natural hazards have the potential to cause property loss, loss of life, economic hardship, and threats to public health and safety. While an important aspect of emergency management deals with disaster recovery those actions that a community must take to repair damages and make itself whole in the wake of a natural disaster an equally important aspect of emergency management involves hazard mitigation. Hazard mitigation measures are efforts taken before a disaster happens to lessen the impact that future disasters of that type will have on people and property in the community. They are things you do today to be more protected in the future. Hazard mitigation actions taken in advance of a hazard event are essential to breaking the typical disaster cycle of damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. With careful selection, hazard mitigation actions can be long-term, cost-effective means of reducing the risk of loss and help create a more disaster-resistant and sustainable community.

 

The following documents are available to view concerning Monmouth County's Hazard Mitigation planning by clicking the appropriate links. Shrewsbury Borough is one of 52 municipalities in Monmouth County that in 2009 has completed a Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan which has been approved by FEMA.

 

Starting in 2012 all previously approved plans have to be updated. This process is expected to take until May 2013 at which point a draft will be submitted again for approval by FEMA. Below are links to the Plan and plan update resources:
