Hazard Mitigation Planning

WCWRPC is west central Wisconsin’s leader in helping our counties and communities to mitigate hazard threats and bring stakeholders together to prepare for emergencies and disasters.  We have a robust understanding of the hazards facing our region and have developed strong relationships with county emergency management offices and other public and private stakeholders to excel in this support and advocacy role. 

WCWRPC has developed hazard mitigation plans for each county within our region as a prerequisite for FEMA mitigation grant funding.  We have coordinated long-term power outage preparedness, wildfire protection planning, and interoperability communications planning efforts.  And we have accomplished a variety of related projects, such as assisting with the start-up of Disaster Ready Chippewa Valley, Inc. and the creation of a continuity of operations plan model for small businesses.
