Hazard Mitigation Planning

The Town of Plaistow is currently in the process of updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan.  The Hazard Mitigation Plan is designed to eliminate or reduce risk to people and property from a range of natural hazards such as winter storms, flooding, hurricanes, wildfires, and earthquakes.  The plan identifies the Town’s vulnerability and susceptibility to each hazard and proposes strategies to mitigate or reduce future damages and was last updated in 2012.  FEMA strongly recommends this plan, and all Emergency Operations Plans, be updated no more than every 5 years or sooner as necessary.

Rockingham Planning Commission is assisting with the update along with representatives from the Emergency Management, Fire, Police, Highway and Planning Departments.
