Crook Co. Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Crook County Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (NHMP) identifies hazards, vulnerabilities, and risks facing the county government and the communities within the county and prioritizes actions to reduce the risks. An NHMP has two core parts: a risk assessment and a mitigation strategy.

Every five years, FEMA requires a complete update of the NHMP to review data and assess progress in mitigation strategies, among other goals. A successful NHMP review process must include:

  • The most up to date information for each local hazard, maps, and other relevant data;
  • Documentation of the NHMP review process;
  • Opportunities for public engagement and feedback on the plan;
  • Participation from representatives of each jurisdiction to be included in the plan (unless a community decides to create their own NHMP); and
  • Documentation of adoption of the mitigation plan addendum for each jurisdiction.
