Clark County All Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2011-2012
The purpose of hazard mitigation planning is to provide strategies for creating a resilient and sustainable community by addressing the hazard vulnerabilities prone to strike Clark County. Disasters exact a heavy toll o communities when they occur, destroying life, property, crucial infrastructure, harming natural systems and disrupting local economies sometimes permanently. This plan will help prevent lives, homes and businesses from being damaged by disaster and help return to normal after the chaos of a disaster.
There are several benefits and reasons to updated the expired Clark County All Hazard Mitiation Plan:
- Clark County will be eligible for an addition 15% post-disaster FEMA reimbursement above the normal 75% to total 90% FEMA reimbursement.
- Clark County will qualify for currently untapped Hazard Mitigation Assistance federal grant funds for Hazard Mitigation construction projects tied to the plan goals, objectives, strategies and mitigation action plan.
- Facilitate public involvement in Hazard Mitigation planning during the plan review process.
- Utilize existing plans and programs to eliminate duplication of planning efforts and foster collaborateion between County departments, CRESA, subject matter experts and the general public.
- Reassess the plan in light of a disaster occurrence, such as an earthquake or major flood, convening within 15 days as appropriate.
Note: In recent federal grant guidance, individual cities are now required to have a jurisdiction-specific annex to the County Plan to receive the above benefits. Included in this process is developing a planning committee to complete hazard ranking, strategies, mitigation capabilities and public meeting requirements.
