Hazard Mitigation Plan

-A A +A

Natural hazards are a part of life throughout Ulster County. All of our hazards have the potential to cause property loss, loss of life, economic hardship, and threats to public health and safety. An important part of emergency management involves hazard mitigation, which is, essentially, actions and projects undertaken to protect things before they get damaged. A hazard mitigation plan describes the hazards that can occur in a community, and then present actions and projects that will be done to reduce risks.

The Town has adopted its hazard mitigation plan and is now included in the Ulster County Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan.
