The goals of the Hazards Mitigation Plan for the Thurston Region are the policy framework for hazard mitigation decision-making. Five goals serve to protect what is most important to the community: people; infrastructure; property; environment; and economy. Four goals are critical for achieving the plan’s vision – the effort required to create a disaster resilient region: building community support; expanding understanding of hazards; implementing effective mitigation strategies; and increasing community awareness.
The objectives define actions or results that can be translated into measurable terms and specific assignments for implementation. Each mitigation initiative identified in the core plan and in the plan partners’ annexes tie to one or more objectives.
