Morris County is pleased to kick-off the 2020 Morris County All Municipalities Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) update. The HMP is updated every five years, with the goal to save lives and property through the reduction of hazard vulnerability. Ultimately, all of our Morris County Municipalities benefit from being eligible for Federal funding. Past efforts from an approved Hazard Mitigation Plan have resulted in Morris County and it’s municipalities being awarded over $36 million since 2011. During this planning project, the county, local leaders and the participating communities will work in tandem to identify risks, assess capabilities, and formulate a strategy to reduce disaster vulnerability in our communities. Please check this site regularly for updates on the planning process and ways to participate in this important effort.
If you would like more information regarding how to get involved in the project, please contact the Office of Emergency Management at [email protected].
Public HMP Mitigation Strategy Workshop
The mitigation strategy meeting is March 3, 2020 at 10am: Morris County Public Safety Complex, 500 W Hanover Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960.
Public participation and feedback is a vital part of the hazard mitigation planning process. Morris County has developed a Citizen Preparedness Survey to assist in providing the public an outlet to contribute to the 2020 HMP update. This survey is anonymous and will be used to develop portions of the plan. Fill out the survey.
