Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The current TCRFC Hazard Mitigation Plan will expire in 2016, therefore TCRFC has initiated steps to begin the next update.  In late 2013, the TCRFC Board selected the JSWA Team to prepare our Hazard Mitigation Plan Update.  The JSWA Team consists of Jeff Ward (JSW & Associates), Tetra Tech, and Halff Associates. Upon coordination with FEMA, the Team learned that this update will require the TCRFC Hazard Mitigation Plan to be split into separate plans covering a maximum of one county per plan.  Although this increases the effort necessary for the plan updates, these single-county plans will ensure a more localized approach to hazard mitigation for our members.

TCRFC has worked with the JSWA Team to apply for hazard mitigation funding through FEMA’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Grant Program. The Team has been successful in obtaining three PDM Grants as displayed below.  Planning meetings for these grants will be conducted over the course of 2015.
