2019 Plan Update
FEMA defines hazard mitigation as: A series of actions and policies designed to reduce and/or eliminate the impacts of naturally occurring disasters on people and property.
A hazard mitigation plan should be considered a living document that must grow and adapt, keeping pace with a community’s growth and change. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA) places a high priority on the continuation of the planning process after the initial submittal, requiring communities to seek and receive re-approval from FEMA every 5 years in order to remain eligible for assistance. The evaluation, revision and update process is also a means to create increased awareness and involvement in hazard mitigation as part of daily activities. The 2019 Providence Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Update will replace the existing June 6, 2013, Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan.Providence Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2019 (Draft) Providence Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan 2013 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan Public Workshops
