Crook County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan
A Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP) looks at natural hazards that the county, Sundance, Moorcroft, Pine Haven, and Hulett may be susceptible to and ways to lessen the potential disasters caused by those hazards. The county’s existing plan is being updated to make sure the county and its communities are disaster-resistant and less vulnerable to property damage and loss of life from a natural disaster. To remain current, the state and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) require that the plan be updated every five years. By getting the plan approved, the county and its local jurisdictions will continue to be eligible to compete for project funds. The county will also be eligible for post-disaster assistance from the state and/or FEMA, in the event of a major disaster. Adoption of the plan is voluntary, but each jurisdiction--the county and the four communities--will need to have at least one mitigation project in the plan and adopt the plan if they wish to qualify for funding and assistance.
