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, Oregon Department of Forestry, and more.
Natural Hazard Mitigation Plans (NHMP) are required, by FEMA, to updated every five years. Wasco County was recently awarded a grant to support an update. Staff is currently reviewing the NHMP to analyze and identify areas for revision.
