Taxpayers pay billions of dollars each year for disaster recovery. Some events are predictable, and often, damages can be reduced or eliminated. The Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 requires communities to develop an approved local hazard mitigation plan to remain eligible for certain federal funding.  Polk County Emergency Management Commission has done so.  Below are the components of the current approved and adopted plan (2014-2019).
