Hazard Mitigation Plan
Updates to Quileute Hazard Mitigation Plan
January 19th 2023
The Quileute Nation is embarking on a planning process to prepare for impacts of natural disasters. Responding to federal mandates in the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390), the Quileute Nation will update its 2015 Hazard Mitigation Plan to enhance resilience throughout the Reservation and Tribal Planning Area.
This planning process is being led by Larry Burtness, Project Manager for the Quileute Nation, with support from Beverly O’Dea of Bridgeview Consulting, LLC, the hired technical consultant. This project is funded by a planning grant from FEMA. The planning process will take approximately seven to nine months to complete.
During this process, tribal members, employees, and local citizens will be asked to contribute by sharing knowledge of the area’s vulnerability to hazards based on past occurrences. Public involvement will be solicited via a multi-media campaign that will include public meetings, web-based information, questionnaires, maps, and updates on the plan’s progress via a website. This process will be directed by a Planning Team made up of representatives from the Tribe and other stakeholders from within the planning area as deemed necessary by the Tribe. This Hazard Mitigation Planning Team will meet as needed throughout the process. Notice of the date, time and location of these meetings will be posted on the Tribe’s website.
An informational website on the plan and supporting information will be established on the Quileute Nation’s Website at
This website will serve as the primary means of gaining information on the plan and ways that individuals can participate in the planning process. Tribal Members and the public are highly encouraged to provide input on all phases of this plan’s development.
Any questions or comments regarding this process are encouraged and should be directed to Larry Burtness, Project Manager at 360-640-1683, email: email@example.com or to Bev O’Dea, Bridgeview Consulting, LLC at (253) 301-1330 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
