This webpage is intended to provide information and updates related to hazard mitigation efforts in Broome County as outlined in the County-wide Hazard Mitigation Plan.
Broome County, along with the towns and villages have developed this Multi-Jurisdictional All-Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) which is an update of the 2007 plan. This plan is designed to improve response to and recovery from disasters, and prioritize projects and resources. Local governmental agencies are required to update their HMPs on a five year basis to prepare for and reduce the potential impacts of natural hazards. This planning will better enable local and State governments to articulate accurate needs for mitigation, resulting in faster allocation of funding and more effective risk reduction projects.
Broome County and the participating jurisdictions intend to implement this HMP with full coordination and participation of County and local departments, organizations and groups, as well as by coordinating with relevant State and Federal entities.
