The University of New Mexico is in the process of updating our Natural Hazard Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan. The original plan was developed in 2010, and requires an update every five years. The plan update process is aimed at raising awareness and reducing the loss of life and property from natural disasters on the main and branch campuses.
Unlike emergency operations plans or disaster preparedness, this plan seeks to develop ways to lessen the impact of natural disasters on the university's resources through strategic, long range planning. We are working in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and FEMA to insure that UNM's mitigation planning will be successful in minimize the impact of natural disasters on our campuses. The update of the plan will be completed by December of 2015.
