The Loudoun County Office of Emergency Management encourages residents and business owners in Loudoun County to help build community resilience to disasters by providing comments on the proposed Northern Virginia Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The plan is a multi-jurisdictional plan that includes Loudoun County and its incorporated towns as well as other Northern Virginia jurisdictions, including Arlington, Fairfax and Prince William counties.
The plan identifies strategies for reducing or eliminating loss of life, injury and property damage caused by disasters as well as the long-term risks that result from hazards such as floods, severe storms, tornadoes, wildfires and winter weather.
In addition to preventing loss of life and injury and damage to buildings and infrastructure, hazard mitigation can prevent damage to a community’s economic, social and environmental well-being.
Members of the community can participate in the mitigation planning process by submitting their comments on the plan by 5:00 p.m., October 8, 2022, by email.
