Kayla Kauffman led a Multi-Hazard Mitigatin Plan Meeting in Tipton County

Kayla Kauffman, GIS Analyst, led a Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan meeting in Tipton County on July 24. As this was the planning team’s first meeting in Tipton, Kayla provided an overview of The Polis Center and explained the significance of hazard mitigation for their community and that Tipton will be eligible to receive disaster mitigation funds from FEMA because of developing a mitigation plan. Kauffman says, “Tipton County can benefit from these meetings because we can address their specific needs in the hazard mitigation update process. They were also interested in working with other counties around them, which is something not very common with these types of meetings.”
