Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Genesee-Lapeer-Shiawassee Region V Planning and Development Commission (GLS Region V), in collaboration with the Genesee County Emergency Management and Homeland Security Office, developed a hazard mitigation plan for Genesee County. This plan identifies natural and technological hazards in Genesee County. Each county must have an approved hazard mitigation plan in order to be eligible for federal hazard mitigation funding.
GLS Region V Staff developed this website to keep the public informed about the plan and to provide access to meeting materials as well as information on Genesee County hazards. The site will be updated regularly.
