Local Multi-Hazard Mitigation Planning SeminarMankato, MN January 19, 2009Jim McClosky - HSEMJennifer Nelson - HSEM

this workshop will cover
The Big Picture – Hazard Mitigation Plans

Mitigation plan requirements

Useful Information, resources

Application for five year plan reviews

Project application overview

This Workshop Will Cover….
hazard mitigation planning what is it
A collaborative effort

Hazards that can cause damage are identified

Vulnerability to hazards are assessed for buildings and Infrastructure

Consensus is reached on how to minimize or eliminate the hazard’s effects

Hazard Mitigation Planning - What is it?
hazard mitigation plan vs emergency operation plan
Hazard Mitigation Plan:

A pre-disaster plan written to demonstrate how a jurisdiction will lower its risk and exposure to disasters

Emergency Operation Plan (EOP):

A response plan written to demonstrate how a jurisdiction will respond to an emergency or a disaster

Hazard Mitigation Plan vs. Emergency Operation Plan
slide9

Benefits from Hazard Mitigation Plans

  • Reduced loss of life, economic loss, damage to property, essential services, & critical facilities.
  • Reduced short-term and long-term recovery and reconstruction costs
  • A roadmap for coordinating hazard mitigation planning efforts
  • A more disaster resistant community
why prepare hazard mitigation plans
Disaster recovery costs will continue to rise due to:

inflation

population increases

For every dollar spent on mitigation

$4 dollars are saved in money not spent on response and recovery (National Institute of Bldg. Science study, 2006)

Why Prepare Hazard Mitigation Plans?
why prepare hazard mitigation plans continued
Risk reduction

Hazard Mitigation Assistance funding eligibility

Public Assistance for “permanent restorative” projects – 406 mitigation

Continued flow of existing obligated grant funds

Up to 249 Community Rating System points leading to NFIP discounts

Why Prepare Hazard Mitigation Plans? (Continued)

Who Develops the Plan?

  • The Emergency Management Director oversees plan development.
  • A mitigation taskforce reviews sections of the plan.
  • A county agency or contractor is tasked with revising the plan, analysis, and/or public meetings.
who develops the plan
Who Develops the Plan?

Public involvement and community partners are essential to a plan’s success.

potential planning partners are
Potential Planning Partners Are…
  • Local Jurisdictions - School Districts
  • Power Cooperatives - Housing Authorities

- Watershed Districts - U of M Extension

  • NOAA/NWS - DNR Waters Division
  • U. S. Army Corps of Engineers

- USDA Soil & Water Conservation Service

- U. S. Geological Survey

potential planning partners can
Potential Planning Partners Can…
  • Assist in reviewing the plan.
  • Assist public outreach.
  • Assist with hazard/risk assessment.
  • Indentify and develop strategies.
  • Possible future applicants.
  • Possible providers of local match.
  • Access to other funding opportunities.
how do mitigation plans lead to mitigation projects
How Do Mitigation Plans Lead To Mitigation Projects?
  • Some strategies may turn into long term projects.
  • Project Design Cycle

1. Analysis (Mitigation Plan Assessment) 2. Design (Studies, Engineering) 3. Development (Funding, Permits) 4. Implementation 5. Evaluation

How to Guide #9 – Bringing the Mitigation Plan to Life

fema s hazard mitigation assistance programs
Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Program

Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)

Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA)

Repetitive Flood Claims (RFC)

Cost Share 75/25% cost share (in general)

  • 75% Federal
  • 25% Local

Approved Hazard Mitigation Plan required

  • Exception is RFC Program

Local share is non-federal funding or in-kind match.

  • Local share may come from state agencies or funds that loose their identity (community block grants).
  • Community groups and the private sector have contributed to the local share.
  • In-kind usually includes staff salary but may include resources and volunteer time.

Suggestion:

Develop a project application as part of a strategy.

The benefits are: 1. Determine if projects are eligible. 2. Develop a plan timeline. 3. Reduces time to submit applications.

Local jurisdictions with an approved plan OR meets FEMA planning requirements

  • Local jurisdictions with plans under development
  • Some interest in Local Mitigation Planning but no formal plan underway
