Flood_stopTJPDC works with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM), and local emergency managers to develop and maintain a regional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan. These plans are updated every 5-years and provide details on how our communities can take action to prepare for natural disasters before they strike, thus reducing the potential for loss of life and property damage when disasters do occur. The hazard mitigation efforts are supported by the Hazard Mitigation Working Group.

Regional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Submitted to FEMA for Approval

The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC) has submitted the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for approval. TJPDC has incorporated revisions in response to review comments from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and FEMA. After FEMA’s approval, the plan will be presented to each locality in the planning district for formal adoption.  Regional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan - 2017
