The City of Moore and Moore Public Schools are soliciting public comments and input concerning an update to our Hazard Mitigation Plan. The "near-final" draft of the update may be found here.
This Plan serves to identify the hazards that impact our City and Schools, and then to suggest actions and/or activities that will reduce any losses from those hazards.
In addition to the planning value of the document to our community, approved and adopted Hazard Mitigation Plans are required by FEMA in order to be eligible to apply for a variety of Federal grants related to the reduction of hazard impacts.
Comments are always accepted; for this planning cycle we anticipate completing the Plan shortly after a Public Hearing at the Moore City Council meeting scheduled for December 16th. After any revisions suggested by the public and/or our City Council, the Plan will submitted to the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management for their review and approval, and then on to FEMA.
Please note that the FEMA requirements for these plans are inclusive only of natural hazards; however in Moore we take an "all-hazards" approach to all of our emergency management efforts. Therefore we have attempted to identify all hazards that might affect us in this Plan; however, we have not (in this planning cycle) added "action items" associated with manmade and technological hazards.
Comments may be submitted via email to [email protected], or by calling the City's Emergency Management Department at 793-5062.
