Burlington County and its municipalities are in the process of updating the Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). The HMP provides a “blueprint” by which participating jurisdictions can coordinate efforts to reduce losses from natural hazards. It is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in order to be eligible for federal grant funding for public and private mitigation projects.

Due to your proximity to Burlington County, the effects of many of these disasters would be similar in your community, and your involvement in this process could reap mutual benefits. By participating in the review of this plan, you will be engaging in the regional coordination of disaster mitigation planning, which is one of the intents of the Mitigation Planning Regulations (44 CFR 201).

The following survey is designed to help Burlington County gain a better understanding of how their neighboring communities operate day-to-day and during an emergency and allows our neighbors to be included in the planning process. 

The Burlington County HMP Planning Partnership thanks you for taking the time to participate in this information-gathering process.
