TJPDC 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.
Are We Ready? Public Workshop
Monday, November 14, 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
Floods, wind storms, winter storms, and wildfires. These natural events happen and can cause injuries, damage to property, and disruptions to businesses and community life. We can join together before the next disaster occurs to make plans to mitigate impacts. This highly interactive workshop will generate ideas to enhance our region’s ability to be prepared for effective emergency response and to bounce back after a natural hazard. The results will be used to update the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan for the City of Charlottesville and Counties of Albemarle, Greene, Louisa, Fluvanna, and Nelson.
