RFP: 2017 Plan Update

The RRPDC invites all qualified individuals and firms to submit a proposal to develop an update to the multi-regional hazard mitigation plan for the RRPDC and Crater Planning District Commission and a Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) for the Central Virginia Emergency Management Alliance.

 

 


 

RRPDC Staff facilitates the development of The Richmond-Crater Multi-Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan, which identifies local and regional risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters, and creates long-term strategies for protecting people and property from future hazard events.

The plan examines natural hazards such as flooding, hurricanes, thunderstorms, earthquakes, and winter storms and identifies measures that localities can take to reduce the impact of these potential threats.

Approval of the hazard mitigation plan by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and local adoption of the plan is required by FEMA to be eligible for federal disaster relief funds. The plan must be updated every five years.

Multi-Regional Effort

For the 2011 plan update, the RRPDC partnered with the neighboring Crater PDC combining the two regions' hazard mitigation plans in order to capitalize on the existing emergency management coordination and collaboration provided through the Central Virginia Emergency Management Alliance.

2011 Plan Update

In 2011, the RRPDC worked with local emergency managers and other local staff across the Richmond and Crater Regions to update the sections of the combined plan that applied to their respective localities. Each  jurisdiction adopted a resolution declaring support for participating in this effort and assigned staff to work on the 2011 plan update.

Adoption and Approval

In 2012 FEMA approved the plan and the governing bodies of the participating localities adopted The Richmond-Crater Multi-Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan for 2011.
