Putnam County, along with its towns and villages, are in the process of developing a Hazard Mitigation Plan

Putnam County, along with its towns and villages, are in the process of developing a Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP).  This plan is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in order to be eligible for federal grant funding for public and private mitigation projects.   The HMP provides a “blueprint” by which local governments can make coordinated, cost-effective efforts towards reducing losses from natural hazards (flooding, severe storms, severe winter storms, extreme temperatures, etc.).  Available funding can support projects such as drainage improvements, structural elevations, and backup power for schools and critical facilities.  To find out more please visit our project website at http://www.putnamhmp.comand take our citizen preparedness and mitigation survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PutnamHMP.
