What goes into a hazard mitigation plan?

A hazard mitigation plan assesses the community's risks and vulnerabilities to natural hazard events such as flooding, hurricanes, winter storms, and earthquakes. Kankakee County uses statewide data and information directly from the community to make this assessment.

The plan includes a set of goals related to the overall goal of hazard mitigation planning, an assessment of existing mitigation measures, and a set of new mitigation measures that will serve to advance the plan goals. The plan update will also look at implementation progress that has been made on mitigation measures from the previous plan.
