2019 Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Hazard mitigation is the use of long-term and short-term policies, programs, projects, and other activities to alleviate the death, injury, and property damage that can result from a disaster. Cook County and a coalition of 121 municipal planning partners prepared and updated the 2019 Cook County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (MJ-HMP) in order to identify the risks posed by hazards and find ways to reduce their impacts. The plan reduces risk for those who live in, work in, and visit the County.

    Annexes will be added following adoption by their jurisdictions.
