Hazard Mitigation Action Plan

Rockwall County and the cities of Fate, Heath, McLendon-Chisholm, Mobile City, Rockwall and Royse City, including Rockwall and Royse City Independent School Districts have partnered together to complete a comprehensive multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for Rockwall County.  Rockwall County, through FEMA grant funding, was able to retain the services of H2O Partners, Inc. to assist in the development and completion of this plan.

The goal of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to minimize or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from known hazards by identifying and implementing cost-effective mitigation actions. Mitigation is defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as sustained actions taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to people and property from hazards and their effects.

 The current draft of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is now in review at the state level. After the state has approved the draft plan, it will be submitted to FEMA for review and approval.

Questions and/or comments about the Hazard Mitigation Plan should be addressed to the Rockwall County Emergency Management Coordinator by email at emergencymanagement@rockwallcountytexas.com or by phone at 972-204-7080.
