Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

The natural hazard mitigation planning process helps communities identify local policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the impact of future losses from hazards.  This is a joint effort to assess risks and form mitigation strategies for Wasco County, led by Emergency Management and Planning.  Other partners include School Districts, Fire Districts, Public Works, the Soil and Water Conservation District, The Dalles, MCCOG, Oregon Department of Forestry, and more.
