Hennepin County’s All-Hazard Mitigation Plan

Hennepin County Emergency Management is updating the All-Hazard Mitigation Plan, as required by the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Local jurisdictions are required to update the plan every five years to remain eligible for pre-disaster and post-disaster mitigation grant programs.

Community involvement and feedback are vital to the success of the plan. The information you provide by completing the survey below will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that can help lessen the impact of future hazard events.

What is Hazard Mitigation?

Hazard Mitigation is any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from natural hazards, such as flooding, storms, high winds, wildfires, etc. Some examples include:

  • Retrofitting water supply systems
  • Stabilizing erosion hazard areas
  • Elevating or retrofitting structures and utilities
  • Building public safe rooms

Mitigation efforts undertaken by communities help to minimize damage to buildings and infrastructure, as well as natural, cultural, and historic resources.

Why Plan?

Hazard Mitigation planning helps emergency management planners to identify the types of hazards that could affect Hennepin County. Hazard Mitigation planning also helps emergency managers and communities to identify actions that can help to reduce losses from those hazards. Ultimately, hazard mitigation planning helps to protect the residents of Hennepin County.

Planning also helps to identify vulnerabilities and develop strategies to reduce the potential impacts of hazards. Building partnerships and reducing duplication of effort among organizations with similar goals is also a benefit of mitigation planning.

In the end, Hazard Mitigation planning helps to build communities that are more resilient to disaster and increases public awareness of local hazards and disaster preparedness.

Resident Input Requested

The Federal Communications Commission, the federal agency that regulates communication including radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable, is requesting input from residents about their broadband access.  This new tool allows the public to input their address and find out who serves their area and report inaccurate information in the current maps.

To ensure that the maps are constantly improving, the system allows consumers and others to challenge inaccuracies and provide feedback. Individuals who see that the information on the maps does not match up with what they know from their lived experience will be able to submit challenges, or request corrections, directly through the map interface.

Federal broadband grants will be distributed based on the new map. Please provide your input to help improve broadband access in Medina.
