Hazard Mitigation

Mitigation Plans form the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce disaster losses and break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage.
State, Indian Tribal, and local governments are required to develop a hazard mitigation plan as a condition for receiving certain types of non-emergency disaster assistance.

Seward County, the City of Liberal, the City of Kismet, USD 480, USD 483 and Seward County Community College, along with the LEPC, have collaborated to develop a Multi-Juridsictional Mitigation Plan to meet this requirement.
