                Hazard Mitigation Planning
Building a disaster resistant community is an initiative that challenges Jasper County to undertake actions that protect families, businesses, and public facilities by reducing the effects of natural disasters.  Reducing the effects of natural disasters makes economic sense, and it is a good public policy because it protects the citizens and the future of the community.

On September 20, 2011 FEMA approved the Jasper County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for the entire county. The plan is reviewed and updated every five years.
