Are we ready for the next disaster?

PEN 1, PEN 2, MCDD, SDIC, and the UFSWQD are working to annex into the FEMA-approved Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (NHMP) created by Multnomah County, City of Gresham, City of Troutdale, City of Fairview, and City of Wood Village. The plan is currently being renewed to run from the fall of 2022 to the fall of 2027. It evaluates natural hazards for each jurisdiction to better understand the risks that communities and public assets face. By knowing the risks, each jurisdiction can then identify and prioritize short-term mitigation priorities to reduce the risk of natural hazards. By investing in reducing risks before a natural disaster, the Districts will reduce the expense and downtime needed for recovery. 

Please complete this survey to assist our Districts with planning.
