Churchill County, the City of Fallon and the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe have launched a planning effort to update the Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of the plan is to assess risks to life and property posed by natural and manmade disasters and to identify ways to reduce those risks.
The plan is required under the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 as a pre-requisite for receiving certain forms of federal disaster assistance.
An update to the Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is being supervised by the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) which is gathering information and seeking input from residents and the public.
Opportunities for public participation on the plan update include a public questionnaire and review/public comments on the draft plan. All comments received from the public will be documented and considered for inclusion in the plan. The County anticipates submittal of the draft plan to the Churchill County Commissioners for adoption in late 2023 before final submission to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Public comments and participation are welcomed and encouraged. Begin by participating in a brief local hazards survey at: https://que7lfsr6.supersurvey.com. The survey will close on Sept. 1, 2023.
Public meetings for input and comments on the plan will occur and be announced this summer and fall.
