Help Plumas be hazard ready

Plumas County is updating its 2014 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) and is seeking public comment. Floods, drought, wildfires and severe weather are just a few of the hazards of concern in the county.

While natural hazards such as these cannot be prevented, an LHMP forms the foundation of the county’s long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses by breaking the repeated cycle of disaster damage and reconstruction. Communities with FEMA-approved LHMPs are eligible to apply for both pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding.

The people most aware of potential hazards are the people who live and work in the affected communities. In addition to plan participation by Plumas County departments and local, state and federal agencies, the county is seeking members of the public to participate in the LHMP update process.

The initial Plumas County LHMP public information meeting will be held Wednesday, Jan. 29, 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Quincy Library, 445 Jackson St., in Quincy.

For more information, contact Plumas County Planning Director Tracey Ferguson, ACIP,  at 283-6214 or [email protected]. To review the 2014 Hazard Mitigation Plan document, visit www.plumascounty.us/2214/Mulit-Hazard-Mitigation-Plan .
