The Town of Clifton works with Greenlee County and other agencies to help ensure that we are prepared for emergencies in our town.
Greenlee County, the Town of Duncan and Town of Clifton have joined forces to review and update the existing Greenlee County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The goal of mitigation planning is to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life and property from all natural hazard events. Mitigation is not how we respond to emergencies like floods and wildfires, but rather how we as a community prevent the impact of such things in the first place.
The mitigation planning process involves identifying and profiling the natural hazards most likely to occur in a community, assessing the vulnerability to these hazards, and establishing goals, actions, and projects that mitigate the associated risks. The update of this mitigation plan will also ensure continued eligibility for non-emergency, federal and state hazard mitigation grants.
A draft of the 2021 updated plan is now ready for public review and comments. Public input on the mitigation planning process is important and residents are encouraged to educate themselves about the updated hazard mitigation plan.
