Hazard Mitigation Plan
Orleans County has updated its Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP).  The HMP analyzes the hazards faced by the County and its municipalities, residents, and businesses, and identifies a strategy for minimizing the vulnerability to these hazards. 

What is a Hazard Mitigation Plan?

In the broadest sense, a hazard mitigation plan examines specific hazards counties and municipalities may face, and outlines a long-term strategy for mitigating against such threats. According to FEMA, hazard mitigation is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. In other words, hazard mitigation keeps natural hazards from becoming natural disasters.
