Clackamas County's 2024 Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan helps the county plan for actions that can lessen the impact of disasters on communities and reduce their post-disaster recovery timeframe. The plan allows the county to identify risks and community vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters in order to develop long-term and short-term strategies for protecting people and property. In addition to being a proactive step in reducing risks, having a plan is a condition for receiving certain types of mitigation-related funding from FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The funding can help with a variety of projects to mitigate risks and reduce vulnerabilities, for example, retrofitting roads, bridges, culverts, and other structures to prevent damage from earthquakes, winter storms, or flooding.
