Under the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, cities and counties were required to develop Mitigation Plans for their jurisdictions. The Cumberland Valley ADD, working with the local elected officials, chambers of commerce, industrial authorities, citizens at large, local media and health departments have devised a plan to mitigate, or lessen the impact, to the Assets and Critical Facilities of the  Region due to Natural Hazards.

 
Assets are defined as residential buildings (houses), commercial buildings (businesses), religious buildings (churches), industrial buildings (manufacturing facilities), educational buildings (schools), governmental buildings (city halls and courthouses, detention centers) and agricultural buildings (stockyards, farmers markets).
 
Critical Facilities are defined as  major roads and bridges, airports, water and wastewater treatment plants and pipelines, water storage tanks, pump stations, communication towers, oil and natural gas facilities, dams and levees and health care facilities.  Natural hazards can be defined as floods, ice storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires, landslides, severe winter storms, etc.
      
The Cumberland Valley ADD Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan was completed and approved by FEMA for a 5 year period until October 2017.  The full plan can be downloaded by clicking here.
