Regional Mitigation Action Plan
The Alamo Area Council of Governments Hazard Mitigation Plan is designed to protect people
and property from the effects of natural and man-made hazards. By taking action today, we
can reduce the likelihood of injuries, loss of life and damage to our communities.
In addition to developing a framework for action, the Regional Mitigation Plan enables participating
counties and municipalities to apply for pre and post-disaster mitigation funding that would not
otherwise be available. This funding can help local jurisdictions implement desired goals and
objectives outlined in the plan.
Participants in the AACOG regional planning process formulated the following guiding principles,
which categorize the types of mitigation strategies ultimately adopted at the local level.
- Communication and Coordination
- Financial Resources
- Technical Assistance
- Education and Public Participation
- Critical Facilities
- Infrastructure and Utilities
- Weather Warning Systems and Hazard identification Technologies
- Environmental Concerns
For each principle, regional-level goals were established along with more refined objectives.
Each county and municipality was responsible for developing their own Mitigation Action Plan,
which identified jurisdictionally-specific actions, written in the form of policies and projects. Each
Mitigation Action Plan includes assigned responsibilities, potential funding sources and a timeline
for implementation. Action plans link the broad ideas established in the AACOG Regional
Mitigation Plan with strategic, action-oriented tasks.
