TARCOG, NARCOG, EARPDC, and RPCGB are partnering with county EMAs in Alabama Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) Division F to develop the Division F Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan (RHMP). The Division F Region includes Blount, Cherokee, Cullman, DeKalb, Etowah, Jackson, Limestone, Madison, and Morgan Counties. We are now in Phase II of developing the Plan, which focuses on Blount, Jackson, Limestone, Madison, and Morgan Counties.

The planning process requires public involvement to assist stakeholders as they identify, plan for, and mitigate risk and vulnerability to natural disasters in their respective regions, and in Division F as a whole.

Essential to this process is the knowledge of our citizens regarding potential hazards and techniques to reduce risk and loss from hazards. Providing information regarding your area's vulnerability to one or more hazards is also important. The collected data will aid the Division F Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan Steering Committee in reducing the effects of hazards such as floods, tornadoes, and severe storms on life and property.

Thank you for your time and participation in this important process. Please check back with us for more information about the RHMP and other events concerning this document.
