HAZARD MITIGATION PLANNING

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors officially adopted the Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (MJHMP) on April 14, 2010 and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA found the Plan to be in conformance with Title 44 Code of Federal Regulations Part 201.6 Local Mitigation Plans. FEMA’s approval of the Plan is for a period of five years, effective starting date of April 30, 2010. The five year update was officially adopted by the County of Maricopa Arizona, on November 18, 2015.

Hazard mitigation planning reduces the risk to people and property, and reduces the cost of recovering from a disaster. A hazard mitigation plan can help communities become more sustainable and disaster-resistant by focusing efforts on the hazards, disaster-prone areas and identifying appropriate mitigation actions. Effective mitigation planning and efforts can break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.

Maricopa County and twenty four incorporated cities and towns, two tribes and one other governmental organization participated in a cooperative effort to update the Maricopa County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The County and each participating community have an approved hazard mitigation plan resulting from this planning team effort to reduce the potential loss from natural hazards. This plan is a living document that requires adjustments to maintain its relevance and remain a useful tool and resource.

The planning team members are committed to continuously monitor and document any changes to the recommended actions in the Maricopa County Multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. This effort is essential for determining the progress made on each hazard mitigation initiative and in performing the annual evaluations of the plan.
