Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

Garfield County is beginning the process of updating the 2012 Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (HMP) and would like your input. Please take the survey to help us understand your perception of where vulnerabilities exist.

2017 Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey

HMPs, like the one approved for Garfield County in 2012, identify where vulnerabilities to natural disasters such as flood, drought, earthquake, wildfire, winter storm, or dam failure might exist. The plan covers the county, as well as participating communities and fire districts. It sets goals, establishes mitigation alternatives, and prioritizes projects which may alleviate potential damages to property and provide protection when future disasters occur.

Please return to this page for plan updates and links to additional surveys throughout the planning process.
