  LC Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan



The LC Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, is a countywide plan that identifies risks and ways to minimize damage by natural and manmade disasters. The plan is a comprehensive resource document that serves many purposes such as enhancing public awareness, creating a decision tool for management, promoting compliance with Washington State and Federal program requirements, enhancing local policies for hazard mitigation capability, and providing inter-jurisdictional coordination.

The federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires all local governments to create such a disaster plan in order to qualify for hazard mitigation funding.

Lewis County tackled this planning effort on a region wide basis, and this plan was last revised in 2010.   The plan is currently being reviewed and revised to reflect hazards threatening Lewis County.
