FEMA Approved Mitigation Plan
On October 30, 2000, the President signed into law the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, also known as DMA 2000. Among its other features, DMA 2000 established a requirement that in order to remain eligible for federal disaster assistance and grant funds, local and state governments must develop and adopt hazard mitigation plans.
The document includes a detailed characterization of natural hazards in Morris County; a risk assessment that describes potential losses to physical assets, people, and operations; a set of goals, objectives, strategies, and actions that will guide Morris County mitigation activities; and a detailed plan for implementing and monitoring the Plan.
