Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

The natural hazard mitigation planning process helps communities identify local policies and actions that can be implemented over the long term to reduce the impact of future losses from hazards.  This is a joint effort to assess risks and form mitigation strategies for Wasco County, led by Emergency Management and Planning.  Other partners include School Districts, Fire Districts, Public Works, the Soil and Water Conservation District, The Dalles, MCCOG, Oregon Department of Forestry, and more. 

The 2017 Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Update Steering Committee will meet several times this year and will have the updated plan complete by the beginning of 2018.    Hazards being reviewed include droughts, earthquakes, flooding, wildland fires, landslides, severe local storms, tornadoes, and volcanoes.  For more information, or if you would like to participate, please contact:
