Hazard Mitigation

Hazard mitigation is any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to life and property from hazard events. The Calvert County Division of Emergency Management collaborates with governmental and non-governmental partners before, during, and after disaster events to identify, develop, and implement comprehensive hazard mitigation strategies. These activities are undertaken in two ways: hazard mitigation planning and hazard mitigation grants for residents. Click the links on the sidebar for more information on these activities.
