Pre-Disaster Mitigation

SECOG staff assists counties with their Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plans. This is a multi-jurisdictional plan that identifies hazards and assesses the risks historically faced by counties. The plan incorporates a mitigation strategy that encompasses a set of goals, objectives, and action steps to help mitigate against and minimize damages imposed by the identified hazards. The plan illustrates the 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.
