Are you aware of the hazard risks that impact your home? Do you know about Pinellas County's Local Mitigation Strategy?
Pinellas County’s Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS) is a plan that assesses our community’s risk to various hazards and identifies projects that will reduce loss of life and property. It is a countywide all-hazards plan that looks at both natural and man-made hazards. Having this plan in place, makes local governments, businesses, non-profits and residents in the county, eligible to apply for federal hazard mitigation grant funding. The LMS also serves as the county’s floodplain management plan and earns credit under the Community Rating System (CRS) program, which provides flood insurance premium discounts to each participating jurisdiction.
Your feedback on this survey is essential to improve the Plan and formulate appropriate mitigation actions. It will improve our understanding of the local hazard risks and guide us in pursuing policies, actions, and mitigation strategies that best fit our mitigation goals.
