Currently 3 year update cycle2010 State Plan expires 7 Nov 2013FEMA likely to change to 5 year cycleMust keep updatedEligible for Public Assistance Categories C-G fundingEligible for PDMC fundsOver $10.8 million in Mitigation funds to Montana since 1996Projects funded 75 federal/25 non-federalMust meet benefit/cost analysis of 1.0

82013 STATE PLAN UPDATE HAZARD RANKING METHODOLOGY Calculated Priority Risk Index (CPRI) **See handoutProbability - Highly likely to unlikelyMagnitude/Severity - catastrophic to negligibleWarning Time - < 6 hours to > 24 hoursDuration- < 6 hours to > one weekHazards ranked by SHMOResults validated by Planning Team
102010 STATE PLAN REVIEW Section 1 - Introduction Section 2 - Planning ProcessSection 3 - State ProfileSection 4 - Risk AssessmentSection 5 - Mitigation StrategySection 6 - Capability AssessmentSection 7 - Plan Maintenance
11SECTION 1.0 - INTRODUCTION Purpose – documenting historical hazard events and vulnerabilities and strategies for mitigation that will make Montana a more disaster resistant State.Scope – Meet requirements of Standard Level Plan with potential to expand to an Enhanced Plan in the future.Authority – Section 322 (Mitigation Planning) of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act enacted by Section 104 of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000.
12SECTION 2.0 - PLANNING PROCESS 2010 STATE PLANPlanning Team – review and decision makingStakeholders Group – agencies, businesses, non-profitsLocal Involvement – 12 meetings around the stateProject website2013 STATE PLAN UPDATEPublic meetings in six largest cities (Billings, Missoula, Great Falls, Butte, Bozeman and Helena).Interactive Website – with blog capabilities for SHMO.Introduction of social media (Facebook).Educational module for high school students.Poster session at Capitol rotunda during legislature.
13SECTION 3.0 - STATE PROFILE 2010 STATE PLANClimate – topography, temperature, precipitationState-Owned AssetsState BuildingsInfrastructure – highways, bridges, dams, etc.Population (2000 census data)Economy2013 STATE PLAN UPDATELook at effect of climate changeUpdate asset dataUtilize data from 2010 census
14SECTION 4.0 - RISK ASSESSMENT 2010 STATE PLANProfile 8 HazardsUse GIS to calculate loss estimates using census block data2013 STATE PLAN UPDATEDevelop hazard profiles for Communicable Disease, Drought, TerrorismSpatially locate critical facilities for GIS analysisUse GIS to intersect state critical facilities within hazard areas.Use GIS to intersect Montana assessor data with hazard areas.Report data of # and value of residential and commercial/agr/ industrial structures at risk for each county and incorporated city
152013 STATE PLAN RISK ASSESSMENT Develop GIS layer for each hazard area where spatial differences exist.WUI from CWPPs for wildfireDFIRMS/HAZUS for floodingInundation maps for dam failurePeak ground acceleration for earthquake¼-mile buffer to highways/railroads/facilities for hazardous material incidentsDetermine societal exposureTotal population at risk, under 18, over 65
16SECTION 5.0 - MITIGATION STRATEGY 2010 MITIGATION GOALSGoal 1 - Maximize the Use of Mitigation Actions that Prevent Losses from All HazardsGoal 2 - Increase State’s Capability to Provide and Assist Locals with Mitigation OpportunitiesGoal 3 - Reduce Impacts from the Dam Failure HazardGoal 4 - Reduce Potential Earthquake Losses in Seismically Prone AreasGoal 5 - Mitigate the Potential Loss of Life and Property from FloodingGoal 6 - Reduce Losses from Hazardous Material IncidentsGoal 7 - Reduce Impacts from LandslidesGoal 8 - Reduce Impacts from Severe Summer WeatherGoal 9 - Reduce the Community Impacts of Wildland/Rangeland FiresGoal 10 - Reduce Impacts from Severe Winter Weather
17SECTION 5.0 - MITIGATION STRATEGY 2013 STATE PLAN UPDATEInclude mitigation strategy for communicable disease, drought, and terrorism.Develop implementation details for high priority projects.Progress made since 2010Activities planned for next 3 to 5 years
