Pre-disaster Mitigation Plan
In our attempts to reduce the impacts caused by disaster, Grand County is updating plans for preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery. One of those plans is the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan (PDMP). The process includes historical data, input from citizens via a survey in late 2005 and government agency recommendations.
