2021 All Hazard Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan
The goal of the project is to save lives and property through the reduction of hazard vulnerability for the entire County. During the course of this planning project, county and local leaders and the community will work in tandem to identify risks, assess capabilities, and formulate a strategy to reduce disaster vulnerability.
Resident and stakeholder participation is a vital part of the hazard mitigation planning process. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in lieu of in-person outreach at this time, we will continue to update this page with ways you can keep informed and engaged in the Hunterdon County HMP. Keep checking back regularly for information on upcoming events, to take our survey, and to review and comment on the draft plan.
