Hazard Mitigation Plan Status

2022 Plan: We are currently in the yearly review phase.  Our Committee usually meets quarterly to review progress on action items.

2017 Plan: Northumberland County has completed the process of updating the 2017 Hazard Mitigation Plan.  It has been adopted by the County and Approved by FEMA | PEMA.


Important Information:

The Original Plan was completed in 2012.  We, as all counties are, were mandated by FEMA to complete a 5 year update of the plan.  We have tediously worked through the process set fourth by FEMA to reach our final goal of completely overhauling the 2017 plan and meeting all specified requirements.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requires that a jurisdiction actively participate in the HMP planning process, as well as participate in one planning or public meeting held during the course of the update process, to be eligible to adopt the revised Northumberland County HMP as its own.

As the planning process continues, the County will hold planning committee meetings the 2nd Wednesday of the month each quarter which are open to Municipalities and Businesses to provide input in the planning process, all of which will be held at the County’s Administration Center (399 Stadium Drive, Sunbury Pa 17801) next the football field.

Also during the update process, the County will hold multiple public meetings to that will be open to everyone.  Municipalities, Business, and the public are all encouraged to attend these meetings to voice any input, questions or concerns.

2022 Plan Update Outline

We are currently in the yearly review phase.  Our Committee usually meets every 6 months to review progress on action items.
