Mitigation Plans for Public Comment How to Help Disaster Survivors

A draft of Wyoming Region 5 (Fremont, Sublette counties and the Wind River Reservation) Hazard Mitigation Plan is being made available for public review and comment. The plan assesses risks posed by natural and man-made hazards, identifies ways to reduce those risks, and allows the counties and tribes to be eligible for mitigation funding from FEMA.

A Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee (HMPC) that includes representatives from the counties, tribes and municipalities developed the plan over the past eight months with assistance from a consultant. The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and a variety of mitigation projects with the intent of reducing losses from hazard events before they occur again.

The regional planning committee is now soliciting public and stakeholder comment on the plan before it is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval.

The comment period will be September 7- 21, 2017.

The compassion and generosity of the American people is never more evident than during and after a disaster. It is individuals, non-profits, faith- and community-based organizations, private sector partners, and governmental agencies working together that will most effectively and efficiently help survivors cope with the impacts of Tropical Storms Harvey, Irma and Maria - and the recent earthquakes in Mexico.

Please follow a few important guidelines below to ensure your support can be the most helpful for disaster survivors.

To Donate to Relief Efforts

The most effective way to support disaster survivors in their recovery is to donate money and time to trusted, reputable, voluntary or charitable organizations.

Cash donations offer voluntary agencies and faith-based organizations the most flexibility to address urgently developing needs. With cash in hand, these organizations can obtain needed resources nearer to the disaster location. This inflow of cash also pumps money back into the local economy and helps local businesses recover faster.
