Hazard Mitigation / Disaster Resiliency

Hazard Mitigation

Hazards are unpreventable natural events that, by their nature, may expose our population to the risk of death or injury and may damage or destroy private property, societal infrastructure, and agriculture or other developed land.

Hazard mitigation planning is the process of determining how to reduce or eliminate the loss of life and property damage resulting from natural and human-caused hazards.

For information on local disaster declarations, mitigation activities or mitigation grant programs please visit the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management.
