Dare County and our municipalities are updating our Hazard Mitigation Plan to better protect the people and property of the region from the effects of natural and human-caused hazards and to maintain eligibility for mitigation funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Details on the update process can be found by visiting the Outer Banks Hazard Mitigation Plan Update website.  On this site you can find information about upcoming and past Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee meetings and public meetings, take a survey on hazard risk and mitigation options to inform the plan’s development, and review draft documents and summaries of the hazards that affect the Outer Banks.

Citizen input is a critical part of the plan update process.  We encourage everyone to visit the website to learn about the effort and participate in public meetings.
