  Hazard Mitigation  


Somerset County has been awarded grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, to complete a countywide Hazard Mitigation Plan Update.  The previous plan was completed and adopted by the Somerset Board of Commissioners, the City of Crisfield, and the Town of Princess Anne in 2012.   Hazard mitigation is sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term to human life and property from hazards. Mitigation is the foundation of community resilience and touches all parts of a community: how floodplains and natural resources are managed, how a community builds, and where infrastructure and critical facilities are placed. 

Somerset County may engage in mitigation efforts both before and after a disaster to become more resilient. This requires addressing not only the physical and environmental impacts of hazards, but also the economic and social impacts.  To that end, a stakeholder committee has been identified to assist in the plan development process. Stakeholder meetings are open to the public and have been scheduled on the following dates: June 7,2017; July 12, 2017; and, August 2, 2017.  All meeting will start at 10:00 AM and be held in room #120 at 11916 Somerset Avenue in Princess Anne, Maryland
