All Hazard Mitigation Plan 2015
The All Hazard Mitigation Plan (AHMP) serves as the strategy document for Kootenai County's hazard mitigation program. This plan identifies
the hazards affecting Kootenai County; analyzes risks and vulnerabilities, determines potential losses, and develops strategies to reduce
impacts, with the ultimate goal of saving lives, reducing injuries, and decreasing financial losses. Mitigation measures range from public
education and land use planning to specific construction actions that reduces hazard losses. The Kootenai County AHMP is revised every
five years in compliance with appropriate laws and regulations.
Kootenai County, in conjunction with 33 partners, including representatives from Municipalities, Law Enforcement, Fire Districts, Emergency
Medical Services, Highway Districts, Transportation Department, Schools and the Citizens of Kootenai County, reviewed and updated the 2009
AHMP between August 2014 and June 2015. FEMA approved the 2015 plan pending adoptions by all partners August 10th, 2015.
The 2015 revision to the 2009 AHMP improves scientific information on natural hazards and human-caused threats, updates disaster events,
provides strategic direction to mitigate hazards, identifies potential funding resources, and guides decision makers in prioritizing
assistance to local entities.
