NATURAL HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN (NHMP) SUBCOMMITTEE
The Eugene-Springfield Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) in December 2014. Eugene and Springfield jointly developed this Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan in an effort to identify risks and prioritize actions that will reduce future loss of life and property resulting from natural disasters. Section 1.6.5 of the plan designates the Lane Preparedness Coalition as the supporting body for implementation of the plan.
The NHMP Subcommittee annual work plan provides direction.
The NHMP Subcommittee reports annually to the LPC Steering Committee.
EMERGENCY WATER SUPPLY PROJECT TEAM
Water storage is listed as a multi-hazard priority in the NHMP summary of mitigation actions. The emergency water supply project team convened in January 2016 to author a guidebook for commercial, industrial and institutional facility managers.

ECONOMY AND RECOVERY FINANCE PROJECT TEAM
Sobering statistics from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration indicate that 40% of businesses affected by a major disaster never reopen. 25% of businesses will fail within one year and 90% will fail after two years. The goal of the economy and recovery finance project team was to publish a plan to develop infrastructure to support business continuity for Lane County businesses after a disaster. The Steering Committee voted at its July 12, 2017 meeting to table this effort.
