MULTI-JURISDICTIONAL HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN

The Huntingdon County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan adopted in March 2015 must be updated and adopted in 2020. The planning process for this Update is coordinated by Huntingdon County and consultant Michael Baker International.  For more information, please visit the project website at https://www.pennsylvaniahmp.com/huntingdon_county_hmp

If you have questions or would like to participate, please contact Project Manager, Troy Truax, at Troy.Truax@mbakerintl.com.
 
 

The public review period ended August 13, 2020.  The next step is submission of the Plan to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) for review.  Submission to PEMA is planned by the end of September.  Following Plan revisions resulting from PEMA's comments, the Plan will be sent to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for review.  Any revisions from FEMA's comments will be addressed.  It is anticipated that the Plan will be ready for municipal and county adoption by the end of the year.
