“This Plan describes how the County and the participating jurisdictions have
been impacted by severe weather and other natural hazards and identifies
specific mitigation actions that can be taken to reduce damages to life and
health, infrastructure, and property before events occur,” according to Kendall
Caruthers, Logan County EMA Coordinator.
The Logan County All Hazards Mitigation Planning Committee prepared this draft
Plan with technical assistance from state and federal agencies as well as a
consultant specializing in emergency management planning. The Committee is
comprised of representatives from various County departments in addition to
Atlanta, Broadwell, Elkhart, Hartsburg, Lincoln, Mt. Pulaski, Lincoln Elementary
School District #27 and Lincoln College. The Committee began meeting last fall
to prepare this Plan update. Federal law requires that these Plans be updated
every five years.
