For Immediate Release
Poweshiek County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update
Poweshiek County Emergency Management Agency has contracted with Two Rivers Emergency
Management, LLC of Des Moines to develop the latest update to our county-wide Hazard
Mitigation Plan. Federal law requires this plan to be updated every five years.
The plan, known as the Poweshiek County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, will
assess natural and human-made hazards’ risk and vulnerabilities to the county, each municipality
within the county, and each community school district and provide recommendations to increase
their resiliency. Participation in this plan makes your municipality, school district, or university
eligible for a number of federal grant programs that it would not be eligible for otherwise.
All residents, businesses, community leaders, elected officials, and other interested parties are
invited to attend the plan’s kick-off meeting. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and following
along with local, state, and federal recommendations this meeting will be held virtually on
Wednesday, May 13th at 7:00 PM by Two Rivers Emergency Management, LLC. If you wish to
attend the meeting, please email the Poweshiek County Emergency Management Agency at:
email@example.com or calling (641) 623-4357 and the virtual meeting information
will be provided to you.
At the kick-off meeting, we will discuss the reasons and benefits of updating the hazard
mitigation plan, the project schedule and work plan, and all the hazards that affect Poweshiek
County. This project is intended to last the next several months, and in order for it to be
successful, we ask for your participation and input.
