We encourage all of our community stakeholders to provide feedback for hazard mitigation. Your voice is important to producing an effective mitigation plan for our county and region. Please take the survey: Hazard Mitigation Planning Public Survey

Our hazard mitigation planning process reduces risks and helps prepare our communities for all types of hazards. This detailed planning makes the counties more sustainable and more resilient to various emergencies and disasters, such as winter storms, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, flooding, droughts, wildfires, tropical storms, etc. Seven counties, including 37 jurisdictions, have been working together to produce a regional Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The Forsyth County portion of the plan must be regularly updated, reviewed and adopted by all the jurisdictions in Forsyth County; the jurisdictions include: Bethania, Clemmons, Kernersville, Lewisville, Rural Hall, Tobaccoville, Walkertown, Winston-Salem and the Unincorporated areas of Forsyth County. The Forsyth County portion of this plan is maintained by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Office of Emergency Management.

Because of the large file size of the complete plan document, it has been divided into 3 parts: The General Plan, Forsyth’s Annex (C), and the Appendices. Note: Other county annexes are not included.
