    The Pima County Department of Environmental Quality is actively participating in the collaborative working group, headed up by the Pima County Office of Emergency Management (PCOEM), that is updating the 2017 Pima County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.  This plan is used to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with potential disasters and to develop long-term strategies for mitigating these risks in order to protect the residents of Pima County.

    FloodThe hazards addressed in this plan include disease, drought, extreme temperatures, floods, wildfires, and more. 

    We encourage the public to comment on the current plan and the final draft when the plan is updated.  The 2012 plan is currently available for viewing and comment on the Pima County website at PCOEM Mitigation.  

    Comments may be submitted through the electronic form also located on the PCOEM website.  The 2012 plan is available for comment and revisions before FEMA approval by the end of the 2016 calendar year.

    Once plan revisions are complete, the final draft will be made available for review and comment, so please check back with PCOEM regularly.  Additional information regarding hazard mitigation and the Pima County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan can be found on the PCOEM webpage.  

    If you have questions, please contact: Courtney Bear, Program Manager, PCOEM, (520) 724-9300.
