Hazard Mitigation Plan
South Central Kansas (Homeland Security Region G) Multi-Hazard, Multi-Jurisdictional Mitigation Plan
Butler County, along with ten other counties in the South Central Region, is currently participating in a project with the State of Kansas to update the Region G Multi-Hazard, Multi-Jurisdictional Mitigation Plan that is set to expire on May 30, 2019. The purpose of this type of plan is to look at local hazards and historical disasters and identify ways to lessen or eliminate the impact of future disasters. Additionally, having an approved Hazard Mitigation Plan makes participating jurisdictions eligible to apply for funds under FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.
After several months of work by all parties involved, the contractor has released a draft copy of the plan for review. A formal period of public review and comments will take place from Monday, March 11th through Friday, March 15th. The draft plan will remain available after that time for the public to review, but formal comments will no longer be collected. This short window was necessary to allow the contractor to submit everything to FEMA in time to receive approval before the current plan's expiration. Below is the draft plan, as well as the current Hazard Mitigation Plan, which remains in effect through May.
To submit comments about Butler County's portion of the draft plan, please contact Emergency Management by either phone (316-733-9796) or email.
