Hazard Mitigation Planning


August 21, 2020 – 5:30 PM -- Public Workshop #1 (Hazard Identification)

September 25, 2020 – 5:30 PM -- Public Workshop #2 (Mitigation Actions)

Planning efforts are currently underway for the 2021-2026 Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation Hazard Mitigation Plan. This local plan will help to reduce the loss of life and property by reducing the impact of disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, and wildfires. Though a comprehensive six-month-long planning process, hazard risks will be explored and an action plan of improvement projects will be identified and prioritized. Community feedback matters! Please review the links below to find surveys where you can offer your thoughts. This topic will also be discussed in multiple public meetings over the coming months.
