Town of Nantucket Hazard Mitigation Plan Update

Public notice

What can be done to minimize our vulnerabilities to natural hazards? Please fill out the survey and let us know!

Hurricanes Sandy, Jose, and Irma are reminders that Nantucket is at risk to significant natural hazards.


What can be done to minimize our vulnerabilities to natural hazards? The Town of Nantucket is updating its hazard mitigation plan to make sure it continues to be relevant and useful. This plan discusses the occurrence and consequences of floods, winter storms, tornadoes, hurricanes and tropical storms, wildfires, earthquakes, and dam failure. The plan identifies activities that communities can perform before natural hazards occur in order to minimize property damage, risk of life, and the costs that are shared by all. This update will identify significant changes in risks, vulnerabilities, capabilities, and mitigation actions that have developed since adoption of the previous plan in 2007.


Please fill out the survey and let us know:

· What Hazards Concern You?

The original 2007 plan is available to review on the Town’s website. For more information, please email hbackus@nantucket‐ma.gov.
