Southeastern NC Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

ESP led the development of the 2021 update for the Southeastern North Carolina Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan, which include New Hanover County. The plan is one of 12 regional hazard mitigation plans that ESP managed for NCEM over a three year period. The Southeastern Region of North Carolina includes the Wilmington and Jacksonville areas and the rapidly-developing counties of New Hanover, Brunswick, Onslow, and Pender. The region sustains a high risk of hurricanes and other coastal hazards, wildfires, flooding, as well as a variety of man-made and technological hazards.

Southeastern NC Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

The plan was updated to meet FEMA requirements found in the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Additionally, the plan was updated to incorporate floodplain management planning requirements established by the CRS. A total of 15 communities covered by the plan also participated in the CRS and will received CRS points for the hazard mitigation plan. The planning process was conducted through a regional hazard mitigation planning team which was comprised of representatives from the four participating counties and more than 30 municipalities. The plan was approved by FEMA with no required revisions.
