Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency, Alabama

Jefferson County Emergency Management is currently in the process of updating their Hazard Mitigation Plan. The local Hazard Mitigation Plan is the representation of the jurisdictions commitment to reduce risks from natural hazards, serving as a guide for decision makers as they commit resources to reducing the effects of hazards. The Hazard Mitigation Plan also serves as a basis to prioritize potential grant funding in the future.

An important aspect of the plan includes public engagement. Due to the pandemic, we have created a public survey that will allow our agency to collect important input from the public. The information collected will allow us to get a better idea on how the public prepares, mitigates, and assesses risk on potential hazards within the county, which will allow Jefferson County EMA to develop projects to build a more resilient community.

We would appreciate it if you would help spread the word to your agencies and social media platforms to encourage people to take 5-7 minutes to complete the survey. All residents within Jefferson County are eligible to take the survey. The survey can be accessed here: https://arcg.is/0j1eH1 as well as on the homepage of our website jeffcoema.org.

The Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency is the first line of official public responsibility for emergency management activity in Jefferson County. Our office is located in Birmingham, Alabama.
