Currently, Greenwich is participating with the County Office of Emergency Management to update the municipality’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The original plan was adopted several years ago and needs to be updated to maintain eligibility for certain federal grants as well as make sure we are working together to reduce the risk from natural disasters and hazards to the extent possible. If you are interested in learning more about this project, and offering input, please visit the project website at http://nj4hmp.com.
