Emergency Management

Currently, we are participating with the County Office of Emergency Management to update the municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain eligibility for certain federal grants, as well as make sure we are working together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent possible.  If you are interested in learning more about this project,
please visit the project website. The website includes current information and also will allow you to submit any comments or questions.

Preliminary Apendix
As part of the on-going update of the Cumberland County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, a Preliminary Municipal Appendix is available for review that addresses natural hazard mitigation issues for our community. The Preliminary Municipal Appendix can be downloaded from the project website by clicking on “Cumberland County” and then clicking on “Hopewell Township”.
