Langlade County
All Hazard Mitigation Plan
2013 Update


Counties are required to make such plans as a result of the federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K). This Act put a national priority on hazard mitigation by requiring mitigation plans in order to be eligible for disaster mitigation grant programs from FEMA. Langlade County has developed a multi-jurisdictional plan to establish eligibility for both the county and each municipality in the same way the county-wide outdoor recreation plan works with DNR grants. This in no way obligates or commits any local jurisdiction.

This plan is intended to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from natural disasters. Hazards covered in the plan include flooding, tornadoes, temperature extremes, wildfire, and others.
