Clark County’s Office of Emergency Management is working on a regional effort to create the 2012 Clark County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. Clark County is vulnerable to a number of hazards, including communicable disease, wildfires, flash floods, earthquakes, drought and river flooding. The plan provides the County and participating cities the necessary tools to prioritize future actions for reducing the damage from such disasters. The plan also will provide a framework for future requests for federal assistance to help reduce these risks. Regional partners in this effort include the cities of Henderson, Las Vegas, Mesquite and North Las Vegas, and special districts of Clark County Schools, Regional Flood Control, Southern Nevada Health and Water Reclamation.
A draft of the plan is available for public review and comment through Friday, July 20, 2012, and is posted on our website.
In addition we are seeking input from residents to identify concerns posed by natural and man-made hazards, and to find ways to reduce damage from those risks. Please provide your feedback by completing our hazard mitigation questionnaire. The questionnaire should be completed by an adult, preferably the homeowner or head of household. Completed questionnaires can be emailed or sent to us by mail. To submit the form by email, first save the blank form on your computer, fill it out, and then email it to the Office of Emergency Management OEM@ClarkCountyNV.gov. The form also can be printed out and mailed to:
Clark County Office of Emergency Management
500 S. Grand Central Pkwy. Las Vegas, NV 89155-1212
Questions can be directed to the Office of Emergency Management at (702) 455-5710.
