In April 2014, the Counties of Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem initiated a project to update four Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plans that were approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 2010 and 2011. The hazard mitigation plan update effort was led by the respective Offices of Emergency Management for the four counties with the assistance of Stuart Wallace, LLC, mitigation planning consultants.
Draft documents were submitted to FEMA in 2015 and FEMA issued approvals for all four counties and the participating municipalities in 2016. The updated plan will be valid until 2021.
The Mitigation Plans for Four New Jersey Counties consists of the following documents:
- Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan – including summary information that is common to all participating jurisdictions in the NJ4 HMP.
- Annexes – compiling information supporting the Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan.
- Appendices for eighty-five (85) participating counties, municipalities, and institutions – identifying hazard priorities, critical facilities, and mitigation measures for each participating jurisdiction.
