The plan is an update from the previous plan which was completed in 2019. The purpose of a Hazard Mitigation Plan is to reduce the loss of life and property during times of hazardous events.

This plan was developed through a cooperative effort of officials from Mercer County, the City of Princeton, the City of Mercer, the Princeton R-V School District, and the North Mercer R-III School District. Once approved by the participants and the public, it will be submitted to the State Emergency Management Agency for review and will be given to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for final review.
