Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) Survey


The Perry County Planning Commission and Emergency Management Agency are currently updating the county's Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP).

This countywide, multi-jurisdictional plan was created in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to comply with the federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000.

The purpose of the MHMP is to reduce or eliminate long-term risks to life and property that result from natural or man-made hazards such as severe weather, drought, flooding, transportation accidents, etc.

Because public input is paramount, we are asking county residents, landowners and business owners to fill out this short survey to determine if we should consider changes to the hazards currently listed in the plan.

The update must be authorized by the county, local municipalities, PEMA and FEMA to maintain our eligibility for federal funds that allow us to implement the hazard mitigation measures identified in the plan.
