Fulton County Hazard Mitigation Plan

Welcome to the Fulton County Hazard Mitigation Plan Website. This website provides project updates, resources, and links to hazard mitigation for the update of the plan.

The purpose of this Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) is to minimize the effects that natural, technological, and man-made hazards have on the people, property, environment, and business operations within Fulton County. A steering committee comprised of county, state, and community leaders will work to identify risks, assess capabilities, and create a strategy to reduce disaster vulnerability.

The 2020 Fulton County Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) update is complete. The HMP documents the risks faced by the county and its communities, an analysis of stakeholder capabilities, and a set of goals, objectives, and actions to reduce vulnerability across the county. There will be a public webinar to collect comments on the draft HMP on Monday, June 22, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. Interested parties are invited to attend the webinar and provide comments. Please contact Mary K. Seville, Planning & Mapping Director, at 717-485-3717 for webinar/conference call information.
