All-Hazard Mitigation Plan

Dickinson County, KS Hazard Mitigation Plan


Dickinson County has developed a Regional Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan to better address potential natural hazards before they occur and to maintain eligibility for mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The plan was developed by a Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC), with participation from county and city departments, and state and federal agencies.

The plan addresses a comprehensive list of hazards, such as tornadoes and flooding, and will assess the likely impacts of these hazards to communities in Dickinson County and North Central Kansas. It also sets goals and prioritizes projects to reduce the impacts of future disasters on people and property in the county.

The Final Approved Plan [PDF] is available for your review.
