Natural hazards like floods, high winds, lightning, tornadoes, earthquakes, drought, and wildfires, impact Connecticut every year. These events destroy property, cause power outages, block roads, and can even cause injury and death.
A Hazard Mitigation Plan is a tool that helps a community to understand risks and to take specific steps to reduce property damage, injury, and loss of life.
The Northwest Hills Council of Governments (NHCOG), along with each of its 21 member municipalities, is in the process of developing its first multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for all 21 communities. This plan will incorporate existing, separate hazard mitigation plans covering the NHCOG municipalities, with updates based on recent changes and public input.
