Are we adequately planning for Utah’s Natural Hazards? Let us know!

Public comment period now open for the Utah Hazard Mitigation Plan

Natural Hazards in Utah! What is Utah’s hazard risk? What would happen if we had a flood or earthquake? You can find out in the Utah’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The Division of Emergency Management is currently updating the 2014 FEMA-approved Utah Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires each state to have an approved mitigation every five years. Utah’s current plan expires March 2019.

During the process of updating the mitigation plan, Utah DEM is accepting public comment on the current State Hazard Mitigation Plan. You can find the 2014 Mitigation Plan here.

Do you have ideas or suggestions on how to lessen the impact of hazards in Utah or ideas on how to make the plan more effective? Please reach out and send us your comments to mitigation@utah.gov
