Local Mitigation Strategy

The Polk County LMS is a multi-jurisdictional plan that assesses the vulnerability of the county and its jurisdictions to hazards and elaborates on the risk associated with each type of hazard.  It evaluates local mitigation efforts that should be taken and their usefulness, as well as providing guidance for implementation at the jurisdictional level.  Through adoption of this plan, the county and its jurisdictions will be eligible for federal funds to carry out their mitigation actions from HMGP and PDM grants.
