VERMILION PARISH HAZARD MITIGATION PLAN
The Vermilion Parish Hazard Mitigation Plan is currently being updated in a joint effort by the Vermilion
Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness and the LSU Stephenson Disaster
Management Institute to identify and prioritize future efforts to reduce the risk of damages from natural
hazards such as flood and wind events. The plan identifies an area’s vulnerability to the effects of
natural hazards and the goals, objectives, and actions required to minimize future loss. Completion of
this plan update will allow the parish and its participating municipalities to apply for pre and post
disaster mitigation grant funding through FEMA.
The draft plan will be available for public comment for a two week period beginning Monday, May 18,
2015, and ending Monday, June 1, 2015. The public may view the draft plan for the parish by visiting
