Pre-Disaster Mitigation Planning

SECOG staff assisted with the Lincoln County and Minnehaha County Multi-Hazard Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan 2017.  It is a multi-jurisdictional plan that identifies hazards and assesses the risks historically faced by Lincoln and Minnehaha Counties.  The plan incorporates a mitigation strategy that encompassed a set of goals, objectives, and action steps to help mitigate against and minimize damages imposed by the identified hazards.  This plan illustrates Lincoln County, Minnehaha County, and its communities/jurisdictions’ current and future mitigation actions and strategies in accordance with the guidance materials provided by FEMA and the State of South Dakota’s Office of Emergency Management.
