Hazard Mitigation Planning

Purpose

The Macomb County Hazard Mitigation Plan identifies natural and human-caused hazards that pose a threat to the community; it ranks the hazards based on the potential threat they pose to the population, property, and the economy; and it recommends projects to reduce or eliminate the potential impacts of the identified hazards.

Each community in the county, as well as the county itself, adopts the plan as the official hazard mitigation plan for the jurisdiction.

The plan was last revised in 2019, and was approved by the Michigan State Police Emergency Management and Homeland Security (MSP EMHSD) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to cover the timeframe of 2020-2025.

The current plan identifies the following 29 hazards:

  • Active Assailant
  • Civil Disturbance
  • Cyber Attack
  • Dam Failure
  • Drought
  • Earthquake
  • Energy Emergency
  • Extreme Temperature
