State Hazard Mitigation Program

The purpose of the Nebraska State Hazard Mitigation Plan is to provide comprehensive guidelines for hazard mitigation actions within the state. This plan identifies potential risks with appropriate mitigation strategies to significantly reduce loss of life, injuries, economic costs and destruction of natural, cultural and manmade resources. The current state HMP has been adopted by the Governor and approved by FEMA, this mitigation plan is posted below for easy access by the public and local emergency response agencies. The Nebraska State Hazard Mitigation plan is a living document, and will be rewritten by state officials every five years.
