Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The City of Everett has experienced damage from natural and human caused hazards such as flooding, severe weather, earthquakes and hazardous materials incidents in the past.  The federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires all jurisdictions to adopt and keep current a local Hazard Mitigation Plan in order to receive disaster mitigation funding from FEMA.  This plan represents the City's commitment to reduce risks from natural hazards, and will serve as a reference in committing future resources for hazard impact reduction.

Throughout 2017, we will be updating Everett's Hazard Mitigation Plan and developing new action items using guidance we receive from the community and subject matter experts. We will be hosting a series of meetings to focus on different focus areas including: unreinforced masonry structures, downtown/business district, port and industrial area, Smith Island, and the whole community. After a draft of the plan is completed, we will host an open house some time in the fall.
