Hazard Mitigation Plan

The campus was recently awarded a FEMA grant to update its Hazard Mitigation Plan.

A hazard mitigation plan is the result of a planning process which identifies policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the risk and future HazMit Plan Graphiclosses resulting from hazard events. The Multi-Hazard Mitigation Disaster Resistant
University Plan will address a comprehensive list of both natural and man-made hazards likely to impact the University. The planning process is structured around four phases:

Phase 1: Organize Resources; Phase 2: Assess Risks; Phase 3: Develop a Mitigation Plan; and Phase 4: Implement the Plan and Monitor Progress. These four phases are further broken down into 10 steps, shown in the figure.

The campus community has an opportunity to provide valuable input to assist the planning team to accurately identify hazards and strategies for mitigating the impact of an incident.  In the coming months, we will distribute surveys to collect public input. Please complete a survey to ensure your opinion is captured. Additionally, prior to being submitted, the draft plan will be circulated for public comment.
