Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Guilford County and its municipalities will be working together in the spring of 2015 to update the existing Guilford County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan that will serve as the blueprint for helping make our communities more resilient to disasters. The general purposes of the plan are:

  • To protect life and property by reducing the potential for future damages and economic losses that result from natural, man-made, and technological hazards;
  • Allow the participating communities to qualify for pre- and post-disaster grants;
  • Speed recovery and redevelopment following disaster events;
  • Demonstrate a firm local commitment to hazard mitigation principles; and to
  • Comply with state and federal requirements for disaster recovery and mitigation funding.
