Kane County is subject to natural hazards that threaten life and health and have caused extensive property damage. While these hazards are acts of nature, the impacts on residents, public facilities, businesses, and private property can be diminished through proper hazard mitigation planning.
The Kane County Office of Emergency Management and Kane County Division of Environmental and Water Resources, together with representatives from municipal, township, and nonprofit agencies, developed a Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan for Kane County. The plan and the subsequent hazard mitigation work is being coordinated by the Kane County Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee, created by the Kane County Board on November 12, 2002. The Committee’s members include representatives of County offices, interested municipalities, property owner associations, and public organizations.
