The goal of the project is to save lives and property through the reduction of hazard vulnerability for the entire County. During the course of this planning project, county and local leaders and the community will work in tandem to identify risks, assess capabilities, and formulate a strategy to reduce disaster vulnerability.
Resident and stakeholder participation is a vital part of the hazard mitigation planning process. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in lieu of in-person outreach at this time, we will continue to update this page with ways you can keep informed and engaged in the Hunterdon County HMP. Keep checking back regularly for information on upcoming events, to take our survey, and to review and comment on the draft plan.
The draft Hunterdon County Hazard Mitigation Plan is available for public review. This plan will be available for public review through July 7, 2021. Please use the online form to submit your plan review comments to the County. There is no limit to the number of comments you may submit; however, multiple comments need to be submitted individually using this online form. We thank you in advance for your engagement in this planning process. Please contact Emergency Management via email or 908-788-1196 with any questions.

Citizen Survey Questionnaire
Hunterdon County developed a Citizen Preparedness Survey to assist in providing the public an outlet to contribute to the Hunterdon County HMP update. Thank you for participating in this important initiative by providing us with your anonymous survey contribution. Please visit the Citizen Survey Questionnaire survey.
As part of the HMP update planning process we are engaging stakeholders and are looking for your assistance (i.e., utilities, transportation, business/commerce, emergency services, health/medical). Please consider taking the stakeholder survey so we may collect input in terms of capabilities, vulnerabilities and potential projects. Please visit the Stakeholder Questionnaire survey.
