Below is a list of thing that you can do to achieve your goal this month. Choose at least one, and complete it.



Any emergency is easier to handle when you have prepared ahead of time. Put together an emergency kit with important items to keep at home, and a go bag with items you will need to take with you if you evacuate. Think about what you and your family would need in a disaster. You can make kits for your home, car or workplace. Emergencies can happen anywhere.

Osceola County Hazard Mitigation Planning

Mitigation is any sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life and property from hazards.


Hazard Mitigation Planning is the best action a local government can take to reduce risk and create a safer, more disaster-resilient community.


A Hazard Mitigation Plan approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) makes a community eligible for hazard mitigation grants, which are not otherwise available.


Osceola County is developing a county Hazard Mitigation Plan and invites all local communities and stakeholders to participate in the planning process.
