Tioga County is soliciting input for its Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
Last Updated: 9/7/2023
Tioga County is updating the County's Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). A Hazard Mitigation Plan is a way to identify natural hazards the County faces, evaluate people and property at risk, and create strategies to minimize damages in the long term.
Tioga County’s current Hazard Mitigation Plan was created in 2018 and will expire on August 12, 2024. The 2018 version of the plan can be found here: https://www.tiogacountyny.com/departments/emergency-services/ The updated plan will incorporate the new guidelines provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and New York State’s Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES). Furthermore, it will allow the County to remain eligible for future mitigation funding including the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program.
Your input is essential for making sure the plan reflects public priorities. Your answers to this survey will help the County understand how these natural hazards impact the public and how the County can help reduce this impact. Please click HEREto take the survey.
Tioga County is holding a public meeting to hear your concerns about natural disasters and how to prevent damage and loss from them. This meeting will be held Wednesday, October 4 at 6:00 PM in the Owego Nazarene Church Fellowship Center. Please park on the right side of the church.
