The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) is proud to use this website as a tool in its continuing work to make Pennsylvania more disaster-resistant. The 2013 State Standard All-Hazard Mitigation Plan was approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on October 18, 2013, and PEMA is currently updating its plan for adoption in 2018. PEMA will continue to engage local, county, state and national partners in hazard mitigation projects and planning throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania during the planning process.

General comments and ideas for hazard mitigation projects are welcome from everyone. If you have disaster-related stories and/or photographs that you would like to share, or if you have comments or other information pertaining to hazard mitigation and the planning process, please let us know by contacting us. Any additional information or feedback that you can provide is both helpful and appreciated.
