The original plan was updated, approved and adopted in June, 2008 and once again in June 2013.  The committee is currently working on the next update of the Jefferson County All Hazards Mitigation Plan for 2023. 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.
