"All Sectors of The Community Work Together to Create a Disaster Resilient Region"
The 3rd Edition of the Hazards Mitigation Plan for the Thurston Region results from a multi-jurisdictional process to develop a mitigation strategy to reduce the risks of the most destructive hazards that threaten the region. This plan specifically addresses communities and local governments within Thurston County.
Earthquakes, landslides, severe storms, floods, wildland fires, volcanic events, and other less common hazards can cause lengthy disruptions and are costly to communities, the state, and the federal government. Hazard mitigation breaks the disaster cycle by identifying and implementing sustained actions that eliminate long-term risks to life and property.
Several planning partners are in the process of developing or updating their annex to the plan. Additional opportunities to comment on the partners' contents may still be available. Contact Paul Brewster at 360-741-2526 for contact information for partner representatives.
