The Todd County Hazard Mitigation update effort kicked off with an informational public meeting at the Todd County Courthouse on February 7th 2011. Staff from the Region Five Development Commission gave a presentation about the basics of hazard mitigation planning, and the rationale behind the MHMP program.
A Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (MHMP) is a plan, prepared at the county level that seeks to reduce or eliminate risks to people and property from natural, man-made, and technological hazard. The original Hazard Mitigation Plan that was adopted by Todd County in 2008 has been updated in accordance with FEMA regulations and is being presented for public review. This draft plan will be available for public review from May 1st, 2012-June 1st , 2012. After the public review period the plan will be revised to incorporate public input, and submitted to the Minnesota Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM), for approval and ultimately to FEMA.
The Todd County MHMP team is headed by Michael Wisneiwski, Todd County Emergency Management Director, who is the primary point of contact. Members of the planning team include representatives from both the public, private, sectors.
