Any interested person may serve on this committee. The All Hazards Mitigation Planning Committee will examine the community's risks and vulnerability to all hazards and assess the community's vulnerability to those risks. Additionally, they will look at critical infrastructure and key resources to determine which are most susceptible to risks. A Risk Assessment and Mitigation Plan was completed and adopted by the Jefferson County Commission, all Jefferson County municipalities, WVDHSEM, and Federal Emergency Management Agency in July, 2003. The original plan was updated, approved and adopted in June, 2008 and once again in June 2013. The committee meets is currently working on the next update of the Jefferson County All Hazards Mitigation Plan for 2018. Please call the office at 304-728-3329 for exact dates and times. Once this plan is completed, the committee will meet annually to review the documents strategies, objectives, goals, and plans. Additionally, they meet on an "as needed" basis.
