The Cochise County multi-jurisdictional planning team is in the process of revising the 2017 Cochise County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The Town of Huachuca City, along with other county municipalities, is participating in the revision process. The updated plan is slated for local adoption soon. The Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires all local, county, tribal, and state governments to have a FEMA-approved hazard mitigation plan to be eligible for federal disaster mitigation funds.
Once adopted, the Cochise County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan will ensure that Huachuca City, Cochise County and other participants remain eligible for those funds should the need arise. In addition the mitigation plan, will aid Cochise County, Huachuca City and other municipal partners by building public awareness, reducing vulnerability to natural disasters, and building partnerships.
