Plans and Programs

This plan adopts the Comprehensive Emergency Management System; a nationally recognized disaster planning model that organizes the basic management structure and resource capabilities of the county in a way that can address all hazards that can impact the community -- plus it addresses all phases of disaster management; which in addition to response, includes prevention, mitigation and recovery.

Tioga County’s Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan is now FINAL and officially adopted by FEMA and all Tioga County’s 15 municipalities.
