Mitigation Plan

Lane County MNHMP 2023_FULL PLAN.pdf


Lane County Office of Emergency Management (EM) is currently in the process of updating the Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (NHMP).

The current NHMP was adopted in 2018 and expires October 2023. Oregon Emergency Management (OEM) is responsible for the initial review and coordination of the plan between the local government and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA is responsible for the final review and approval of the plan. According to 44 CFR §201.6(d)(3), NHMPs must be updated once every five years in order to continue to be eligible for FEMA hazard mitigation project grant funding. 

The NHMP’s purpose is to maintain a process that leads to hazard mitigation actions. It identifies hazards, vulnerabilities, and risks facing local, state, or tribal governments, and prioritizes actions to reduce the risks. Lane County's NHMP is a multi-jurisdictional, county-wide plan that assesses and outlines mitigation strategies for hazards specific to our geography, including for the eight incorporated cities in the county that choose to be a part of the plan: Coburg, Creswell, Dunes City, Florence, Lowell, Oakridge, Veneta, and Westfir. In addition to the cities, we have three utility partners as annexes to our plan: Blachly-Lane Electric Co-op, Consumers Power Inc., and Emerald People's Utility District.
