Project Purpose

The Tri-Basin Natural Resources District (NRD) in collaboration with JEO Consulting Group, Inc. is in the process of updating their 2018 Hazards Mitigation Plan (HMP). The NRD’s existing HMP was approved by FEMA and adopted by participating jurisdictions in 2018. FEMA requires that an HMP be updated and approved within a five-year period.

A hazard mitigation plan is a community-guided document that identifies vulnerability to natural and man-made hazards, and mitigation projects to reduce or eliminate this vulnerability. Having an approved and updated plan enables participating jurisdictions to be stronger and more resilient by:

  1. Reducing risk and impacts from hazards and disasters such as: tornadoes, flooding, drought, severe thunderstorms, severe winter storms, dam failure, wildfire, etc.;
  2. Gaining eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grants, and
  3. Building partnerships across the NRD.

 

The planning area for the NRD HMP includes the counties of Gosper, Phelps, and Kearney. Members of communities, schools, fire districts, and other jurisdictions within the NRD are invited to participate in this process by attending meetings and providing information for the plan.
