Agencies approve Hazard Mitigation Plan

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - The Chatham County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan has been approved, the Chatham Emergency Management Agency announced Friday.

The plan was approved by the Chatham County Commission, the seven municipalities within the county, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. 

An approved plan is a federal requirement that allows for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding, according to CEMA. It's active for a five-year cycle and requires an annual review. The plan identifies prominent countywide hazards; establishes goals to reduce damage and injury from those hazards and identifies nearly 250 action steps, according to CEMA.
