Abstract
This plan outlines the state’s strategy for all natural hazard mitigation goals, actions, and initiatives. The South Carolina SHMP is the result of a systematic evaluation of the nature and extent of vulnerability to the impacts of hazards and includes actions needed to minimize future vulnerability to those hazards. It sets forth policies, procedures, and coordination approaches used to establish and implement hazard mitigation activities within the state. Effective use and implementation of this plan is crucial to the hazard mitigation program and the state’s efforts to reduce or eliminate risk from future hazard occurrences. This SHMP, adopted in January 2023, incorporates updates associated with implementation of hazard mitigation programs, including the applicable sections of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (DMA2K) and FEMA hazard mitigation planning guidance. The state’s hazard mitigation program includes more than 20 state agencies, each of which contributes capabilities and expertise from its areas of responsibility. Overall administration of the hazard mitigation planning program is the responsibility of the South Carolina State Emergency Management Division (SCEMD).
