2023 Hazard Mitigation Plan 

Networks Northwest will assist the Emmet County Office of Emergency Management with updating the County's 2016 Hazard Mitigation Plan.

Community Survey

Please participate in our online survey!   The purpose of the survey is to obtain input from community members on past hazard mitigation projects/events, concerns regarding hazard mitigation and preparedness, and potential hazard mitigation strategies.

Meetings and Documentation

Meeting dates, times, and presentation materials will be posted here as they become available.  All Emmet County Local Emergency Planning Committee meetings are open to the public and are held at 10:00 a.m. at the Emmet County EMS Facility, at 1201 Eppler Rd., Petoskey, MI 49770, unless otherwise stated.  Please contact Matthew Blythe, Emmet County Emergency Managment Coordinator, if you would like to attend an LEPC meeting via Zoom instead of in person.
