|dc.description.abstract||The city of Reedsport developed this addendum to the Douglas County
multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan in an effort to
increase the community’s resilience to natural hazards. The addendum
focuses on the natural hazards that could affect Reedsport, Oregon, which
include: coastal erosion, drought, earthquake, flood, landslide, tsunami,
wildfire, windstorm, and winter storm.
It is impossible to predict exactly when disasters may occur, or the extent
to which they will affect the city. However, with careful planning and
collaboration among public agencies, private sector organizations, and
citizens within the community, it is possible to minimize the losses that can
result from natural hazards.
The addendum provides a set of actions that aim to reduce the risks posed
by natural hazards through education and outreach programs, the
development of partnerships, and the implementation of preventative
activities such as land use programs. The actions described in the
addendum are intended to be implemented through existing plans and
programs within the city when possible.
This addendum is comprised of the following sections: 1) Addendum
Development Process; 2) Community Profile; 3) Risk Assessment; 4) Action
Items; and 5) Plan Implementation and Maintenance.||en_US
