Natual Hazard Mitigation Plan Update for Carneys Point
Salem County is currently updating their natural hazard mitigation plan. The plan:
- Identifies risk to the County from natural hazards such as flood, high speed winds, dam or levee failure, winter storms, and wildfires
- Recommends projects and policies to reduce these risks.
- Maintains eligibility for municipalities for certain federal grant program funds
The Salem County Office of Emergency Management is coordinating the efforts of all 15 municipalities. Each municipality has formed a Working Group with public and private sector representatives.
The plan is being updated now through the end of 2023. Draft versions will be available for review in June and August.
How can interested individuals or organizations participate?
Hazard mitigation is most effective when local governments work with residents, property owners, and business interests to identify and understand risks and focus public and private resources on realistic solutions to problems.
For more information, the project website can be found at https://schmpu23.com and will be updated on a regular basis over the coming months to indicate when municipalities will be meeting to discuss the update and to provide community access to work-in-progress.
To participate in the plan update process, individuals can contact their municipality’s Office of Emergency Management.
