Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan for

Fremont and Sublette Counties

draft available for public review and comment

Would you like to learn more about what Fremont and Sublette counties are doing to minimize the impacts of floods, dam failures, wildfires, hazardous materials incidents, and other hazards? A draft of the updated Wyoming Region 5 Hazard Mitigation Plan, which includes individual county annexes, 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 each county to be eligible for mitigation grant funding from FEMA.


County planning teams, including representatives from certain municipalities, updated the plan during 2022 with assistance from a consultant. The plan identifies hazard mitigation goals and mitigation projects for the counties, with the intent of reducing losses from hazard events before they occur again. The counties in the Region are now soliciting public comment the plan before is finalized and submitted for FEMA review and approval. The final plan will be re-adopted by each participating county and participating municipalities before it becomes official.
