(Hackensack, N.J.) - The Bergen County Office of Emergency Management is updating its 2021 Bergen County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP). Hazard mitigation planning identifies risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters and develops long-term strategies for protecting people and property from future hazard events.

A HMP is required by state and federal agencies to be updated every five (5) years in order for communities in Bergen County to be eligible for certain types of state and federal disaster relief funds after a disaster occurs.

The County of Bergen, alongside consultant Michael Baker International, Inc., will host a series of public workshops during this plan update. The purpose of the workshops is to provide an update on the project and to gather input from residents. Public input will help the project team better understand risks, vulnerabilities, and impacts of natural hazards to the community and identify potential mitigation actions to reduce that risk.

Public Workshop #1

Date and Time:

Wednesday, January 24, 2024, 6:00 – 7:00 PM


One Bergen County Plaza, Learning Center

Hackensack, NJ 07601
