Emergency Management - Utah Hazard Mitigation Plan

Utah 2014 Approved Hazard Mitigation Plan

Approved by Gov. Gary Herbert on March 18, 2014

The 2014 State Hazard Mitigation plan is the result of a collaborative effort between state, federal, and local groups and individuals, including FEMA, the Utah Department of Public Safety, the seven Associations of Government, and the State Hazard Mitigation Team (SHMT), which continues to meet quarterly to discuss and incorporate new information and ongoing mitigation efforts.


The State Hazard Mitigation Plan is designed to evaluate the risks that currently pose the greatest threats to Utah, and includes an assessment of natural hazards such as earthquakes, wildfires, and floods; naturally occurring phenomena such as radon gas and problem soils; and man-made threats including hazardous materials spills and possible terrorist activity. The plan then goes one step further in prioritizing how and when the threats will be addressed and suggests mitigation activities that will have the greatest chance of success.
