Hazard Mitigation

  • Wednesday, 31 May 2017 23:52


Mississippi Delta Community College (MDCC or “the college”) initiated development of a Hazard Mitigation Plan (“the Plan”) because of awareness of the risks associated with natural hazards and the desire to better prepare for such events. The purpose of a hazard mitigation plan is to document the evaluation of hazards and the anticipated risks and damage to determine how hazards are address by the College and to help the College identify feasible and cost-effective pre-disaster actions to reduce risks. The College applied for and received a $30,000 matching grant through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) to update the hazard mitigation plan. The HMGP is sponsored by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). Of the project costs, the State share is $30,000.00 (85.7143%). The non-State share is $5,000.00 (14.28570%) which will be paid by Mississippi Delta Community College. The period of performance for the matching grant is March 20, 2017 to March 20, 2018. This update should be completed and submitted to MEMA for review by June 30, 2017, with the FEMA review and approval to follow when found to be in compliance with the federal Hazard Mitigation Planning standards contained in 44 CFR 201.6(b)-(d).

Mississippi Delta Community College has developed and updated the institution's Hazard Mitigation Plan to help our college become better prepared for natural and man-made disasters.

The input you provided during the planning process was vital in the development
of the Draft Hazard Mitigation Plan (click here).

Thank you! We invite you to review the Draft Hazard Mitigation Plan
and complete one final survey of only 10 questions. 





According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), any successful planning activity, such as the development of a comprehensive mitigation plan, involves bringing together a cross-section of the public to reach consensus on how to achieve a desired outcome or resolve a community problem. This process helps the public gain a better understanding of the challenges they face while aiding in the development of a common set of community values and widespread support for directing financial, technical, and human resources to an agreed-upon course of action.


In accordance with the purpose of the Plan, the MDCC Hazard Mitigation Planning Council adopted the following mission statement to guide the planning process: The mission of the Mississippi Delta Community College Hazard Mitigation Plan is to develop, promote and implement measures to minimize or eliminate the impacts of disasters and emergencies to people, property, the economy, and the environment in order to maximize the school’s ability to deliver quality educational opportunities.
