1 CHAPTER 3 GOALS, OBJECTIVES AND ACTION PLAN STRATEGIES FOR IMPLEMENTATION Page 3-1

2 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Goals Requirement 201.6(c)(3)(i): The hazard mitigation plan is required to include, a description of mitigation goals to reduce or avoid long-term vulnerabilities to the identified hazards. 1. In 2008 with the initial HMP, the goals were developed following the Hazard Vulnerability Analysis and Risk Assessment together with the input received from the County and its 30 municipalities. The extensive public involvement process has continued with this plan update and has helped to reevaluate and refine the goals. The following goal declarations identify long-term objectives intended to reduce or avoid vulnerabilities to flooding and the other natural, manmade, and technological hazards described in this plan. The Goals and Objectives are as follow: Goal 1: Strengthen County and municipal capabilities Objective: To reduce potential impacts of flooding on existing and future public/ private assets, including structures, critical facilities, and infrastructure. Goal 2: Increase intergovernmental cooperation and build public/ private partnerships Objective: To implement activities that will reduce the impact of natural, manmade, and technological hazards. Goal 3: Enhance planning and emergency response efforts among state, county, and local emergency management personnel Objective: To protect public health and safety. Goal 4: Continue to build Perry County s spatial information resources Objective: To strengthen public and private hazard mitigation planning and decision-support capabilities. Goal 5: Increase public awareness on both the potential impacts of natural hazards and activities Objective: To reduce those impacts. Hazard Mitigation Strategies and Implementation Requirement 201.6(c)(3): The plan shall include a mitigation strategy that provides the jurisdiction s blueprint for reducing the potential losses identified in the risk assessment, based on existing authorities, policies, programs and resources, and its ability to expand on and improve these existing tools. 1. To address this requirement, the comprehensive mitigation strategy for Perry County its 30 municipalities include mitigation actions that fit into the following six categories: emergency service, natural resource protection, preparedness, property protection, public information, and structural projects. Emergency service measures targeting preparedness opportunities for the Perry County Emergency Management Agency, EOC Staff, County Geographic Information System (GIS) staff, Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), the Planning Commission staff, and local emergency management coordinators. Such measures include: Communications and warning; Emergency operations planning; Continuity of government planning (using guidelines established in NFPA 1600); Evacuation route planning; Page 3-2

3 Critical facilities protection; Public health and safety monitoring; Standardized street addressing; Hazardous materials planning; Damage assessment and reporting; Hazards U.S. (HAZUS) training; and Special needs population identification. Natural resource protection measures which help preserve the County s floodways (regulatory and fringes) and protect public and private property through: Floodplain and riparian areas protection; Stormwater management; Erosion and sediment control; and Wetlands protection. Preparedness measures strengthen county- and municipal-level planning and administration activities for all-hazard events through: Post-disaster recovery and reconstruction; Trainings and drills; and Intergovernmental cooperation. Property protection measures identify and protect both public and privately owned property assets and critical infrastructure. These measures include repetitive-loss properties and identifying opportunities to permanently remove people, property, and businesses from the County s flood-prone areas. Property protection mitigation measures include: Identifying repetitive loss structures; Flood insurance; Business continuity planning; Floodplain regulations; and Critical infrastructure protection. Public information measures are intended to advise officials and the public of hazards and ways to protect people and property from them. Methods for disseminating public information include: Flood maps and data, Print media, Websites, Public advisory and outreach programs, Flood warning and responses, and Technical and financial assistance. Structural projects are capital improvement opportunities to mitigate the effects of flood risks and power outages from severe storms on local critical infrastructure. Some examples include: Bridge improvements, Channel modifications, Critical facility relocation, Stormwater detention or retention projects, Evacuation route improvements, Enhancing communications, and Evaluating existing power supply. Page 3-3

4 Identification and Analysis of Mitigation Actions Requirement 201.6(c)(3)(ii): The mitigation strategy shall include a section that identifies and analyzes a comprehensive range of specific mitigation actions and projects being considered to reduce the effects of each hazard, with particular emphasis on new and existing buildings and infrastructure. 1. The Hazard Vulnerability Analysis housed in Appendix D of the Perry County MHMP evaluated the County s risks and vulnerability to the plan-identified human introduced and technological hazards. The analysis determined that Perry County and the 30 municipalities still remain most vulnerable to natural hazards, particularly flooding, severe weather (particularly winter storms), and even radon. From the technological side transportation hazards remains a popular choice with utilities failure drawing additional attention.. TABLE 3.1 GOALS, OBJECTIVES & ACTION PLAN STRATEGIES SUMMARY Goal 1: Strengthen County and municipal capabilities Objective: To reduce potential impacts of flooding on existing and future public/ private assets, including structures, critical facilities, and infrastructure Strategy 1: Evaluate and refine the County's repetitive loss structures list by ranking properties based on the number of losses and the value of the claims paid and target the priority properties for buyout opportunities Strategy 2: Continue to encourage the County's National Flood Program communities to participate in the NFIP Community Rating System (CRS) to attain discount opportunities on flood insurance premiums Strategy 3: Obtain first floor flood elevation data for the county's inventoried critical infrastructure and intersect this information with the base flood elevations to identify high risk facilities and formulate mitigation strategies Strategy 4: Incorporate the County's Flood Warning and Response System (FWRS) Procedures into Emergency Support Function 2 (Communications and Warning) of the County's Regional EOP Strategy 5: Encourage municipal officials to prepare and enact stormwater management ordinances consistent with Act 167 Stormwater Management Plans Strategy 6: Conduct outreach to municipalities to ensure continued compliance with NFIP Strategy 7: Collect and analyze data on the specific locations and damages caused by flooding in each of the municipalities in Perry County to include in the 5-year update of the Strategy 8: Maintain a list of repetitive loss structures from the Governor's Center for Local Government Service's NFIP Coordinator and incorporate the data into the County's ning project Page 3-4

Strategy 3: Continue to solicit input from municipalities and public and private stakeholders, including local schools and colleges, the Chamber of Commerce, and other groups, for the update Strategy 4. Expand the utilization of the PennFIRS fire reporting system and include this data into the 5 year update of the HMP.
