Welcome to the Jackson County Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) Website

Jackson County and the City of Gainesboro Awarded FEMA & TEMA Grant Funding in November, 2012 to write a Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). On this website you will find information about the HMP, documents, meeting notices, agendas, and planning documents. Please browse the site to learn about natural and technological hazards in your community and the planning process for mitigating those hazards.

HMP Project at a Glance:

Jackson County is working with the City of Gainesboro and the consulting firm Plans & More, LLP to establish a Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) to draft the Multi-Jurisdictional HMP. The input and concerns of the citizens, business owners, local, regional and state agencies of Jackson County are a very important part of the process. Please consider serving on the HMPC to share your thoughts and suggestions for the plan.
