Our Plans

Park County's Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) See the comprehensive and interactive Emergency Operations Plan for Park County including the City of Livingston and the Town of Clyde Park. Revised, finalized, adopted and implemented May 2011.

Hazard Mitigation Plan This Park County Hazard Mitigation Plan exceeds the requirements of a local hazard mitigation plan as outlined in the Interim Final Rule published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2002 at Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 201 as part of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. This plan has been approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as a hazard mitigation plan, and therefore, the county, city, and town may be eligible for federal mitigation funds. This plan serves as a guide for understanding the major hazards facing Park County, the City of Livingston, and the Town of Clyde Park and provides a strategy for preventing or reducing some of the impacts.
