June 17, 2014--The Town of Montgomery, in conjunction with the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, is preparing a Hazard Mitigation Plan.
This planning effort is being undertaken to help the Town of Montgomery assess the risks faced from natural hazards, identify action steps that can be taken to prevent damage to property and loss of life, and prioritize funding for mitigation efforts. A mitigation action is any action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from hazards.
The hazard mitigation plan is being developed with funding provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and assistance from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.
A public meeting to review the draft plan will be announced in the near future.
