Clark County, in cooperation with the cities of Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Mesquite, the Las Vegas Band of Paiutes and the Moapa Band of Paiutes, the Clark County School District (CCSD) and the Clark County Water Reclamation District (CCWRD), has completed a countywide effort to re-assess risks posed by natural, technological and human-caused disasters and identify ways to mitigate those risks.
The planning process has resulted in an update of the Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The County developed its first HMP in 2007, updated the plan in 2012. An up-to-date plan is required under the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 in order to be eligible to continue to receive certain forms of non-emergency disaster assistance.
A resolution to adopt the plan is scheduled for the Feb. 20, 2018, Board of County Commissioners meeting at 9 a.m. The County's 2018 Hazard Mitigation Plan update can be found on our Fire Department's Office of Emergency Management website pages under Community Emergency Plans at: 2018 Hazard Mitigation Plan.
