2020 Mitigation Plan Update
Morris County has commenced work on the 2020 Morris County All Municipalities Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) update. The HMP is updated every five years and serves as the plan for identifying risk and reducing vulnerabilities in our communities. For more information on this plan please check the Morris County Office of Emergency Management (MCOEM) website.
If you would like more information regarding how to get involved, please contact MCOEM.
Public participation is a vital part of this plan. As part of the HMP planning process, Morris County has developed a Citizen Preparedness Survey. This survey is anonymous and will be used to develop portions of the plan. Fill out the survey.
