Abstract

Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM) is the lead agency for the hazard mitigation program in Wisconsin, a key component of which is the State of Wisconsin Hazard Mitigation Plan. The current State Hazard Mitigation Plan was published in December 2016. The current plan builds upon the Risk Assessment and Mitigation Strategy originally developed in 2001 and updated in 2005, 2008, and 2011. In accordance with FEMA requirements, the next update of the State Hazard Mitigation Plan is scheduled for 2021.

The State of Wisconsin Hazard Mitigation Plan is primarily a natural hazard mitigation plan, and the Plan has evolved over time. However, this update has now included technological and human-caused hazards into the risk assessment. This update builds upon the Risk Assessment and Mitigation Strategy that were developed in 2005 and updated in 2008 and 2011. In addition, other plan elements were updated as needed to incorporate new information about hazards that threaten Wisconsin as well as changes to agency programs that address hazards.
