Planning & Policy

Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plans

We assist our clients to meet and exceed the state and FEMA requirements for a local multi-hazard mitigation plan. Our planning team supports city and county governments, local districts, and Native American Tribes, among others. We have a step-by-step process to guide your team through scoping, GIS analysis, public outreach, hazard risk evaluation, vulnerability assessments, and mitigation strategy development. Collaboration and communication are at the center of our team’s service and the successes of every plan.

Through more than 25 years of fire fighting, fuels mitigation, planning support, and document development Northwest Management Inc. can provide updates or full-plan developments of Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) and wildland fire risk assessments. Working for federal and state agencies, Native American Tribes, and local governments offers our team a depth of expertise in meeting facilitation, public outreach and engagement, funding requests and approvals not offered by most.

Our planning team regularly engages with the public through a variety of services. We develop and facilitate public outreach and awareness strategies to help our clients achieve their project goals through live events, such as presentations, town hall-style meetings, open houses, and sponsored booths. We also use various media platforms to host awareness campaigns and disseminate information to a wide audience.
