Update to the Town’s Hazard Mitigation Plan

The Town of Hardwick is updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan as required by FEMA every 5 years. Public involvement and opportunity for feedback is an important part of the planning process and draft sections of the plan will be available for review and comment.

In order to effectively update the Town’s Hazard Mitigation Plan, we are asking residents to complete this survey.

It takes about 5 minutes to complete. Thank you for your time!

The FEMA mobile intake van will be at the Hardwick Elementary school until 5:00 p.m. tomorrow (7/23). This could change, but that is what has been conveyed to the Town of Hardwick by FEMA. Residents that are unable to apply on their own or have questions about the process should visit the mobile site parked in the back parking lot of the Hardwick Elementary School located at 135 South Main Street, Hardwick.  FEMA was also canvasing the village today handing out flyers similar to this one.

**Federal Disaster Declaration for Caledonia County**

If you haven’t heard already, Caledonia County was just added to the major disaster declaration. This means residents of Hardwick can now apply for FEMA Individual Assistance. 

FEMA will have a mobile trailer set up at the Hardwick Elementary School. Residents can meet with FEMA at the mobile trailer to apply for assistance and have any questions answered regarding individual assistance.

We will continue to post fact sheets and pertinent information to our website as it becomes available.
