Sidney updates Federal Emergency Management Agency plan

SIDNEY, Neb. -  The Sidney City Council agreed to update the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Tuesday. FEMA must be updated every five years in order to be eligible for grant funding to assist with the implementations of the mitigation actions.

Hazard mitigation planning is a process where hazards are identified and strategies are designed to minimize the effects. The goal is to reduce the risk and vulnerability to lessen the impacts to life, the economy and the infrastructure to effectively function during a disaster.

The City of Sidney has completed several of the actions identified in the 2012 mitigation plan by providing portable or stationary sources of power for the water wells, lift stations and other facilities and shelters. The City also looped the electrical system’s distribution to provide a backup power source.

The only change made to the updated plan is the addition of the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department as a participant.
